For Opening Day: Meet The Mets (1975 Version)

Just like yesterday’s unveiling of my TSR custom set, sharing a version of “Meet The Mets” has been a Shlabotnik Report tradition since 2012. This year I’ve got a 1970’s version that I’d completely forgotten about but is well worth sharing.

Put on your dancing shoes and meet the Mets!

Meet the Mets!
Meet the Mets!
Step right up and greet the Mets!
