Charity Auction to Benefit VetDogs
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on 7/1/2013
It had been 17 years since the Mets won their first World Series title and they were itching for another. Unlike their first appearance when they were the underdogs the Mets entered the 1986 Fall Classic against the Boston Red Sox as the heavy favorites. The series went to seven games thanks to the infamous error made by Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner on Mookie Wilson's grounder. On Oct. 27 1986 the Mets clinched their second title proving they were amazin' once again. This VIP Experience will allow you to meet Gooden, Mitchell, Orosco, Lyons and get one item signed from each. You will be VIP and will not have to wait in line.
