Their ineptitude resulting in a modern day record 120 losses, the 1962 New York Mets endured futility and a league-high 5.04 team ERA. Celebrating that epic futility, this vintage Mets logo souvenir baseball is autographed by (25) members of that infamous squad. The creamy orb presents nicely and features ballpoint pennings that average (“7-8”) potency with keys including: Ashburn, Bell, Chacón, Hodges, Hook, Kress, Ruffing and Throneberry.
