The Mets: A 50th Anniversary Celebration

by Andy Martino and Anthony McCarron

New York’s National League franchise celebrates a milestone with THE METS: A 50th Anniversary Celebration, by Andy Martino and Anthony McCarron.

The authors, staff writers for the New York Daily News, have collaborated on a fun and attractive coffee table book that might have taken more advantage of its roots. While the blend of narrative and photos from the tabloid are certainly worthy of a publication of this stature on such an august occasion, one wonders if the experience could have been enhanced with carefully selected filler, “drop-boxes,” and statistics. Nevertheless, this will certainly make an excellent gift for the Mets fan on your holiday gift list.
