Mets Monday: A Pair Of 1963 Mets

While the 1963 design still reflects the current Heritage design, let’s take a look at a couple of 1963 Mets recently added to the collection…

Larry Burright played 109 games at second for the 1962 Dodgers, was traded to the Mets and played only 41 games for a 1963 Mets team which lost 111 games, and only 3 games in 1964.  I don’t know what that says about Burright… or the Mets… or the Dodgers.

Wynn Hawkins pitched for the Indians from 1960 to 1962, but never actually pitched for the Mets.  The Mets purchased him from the Tribe late in 1962, but he never made it out of AAA after that.
