For a decade, the New York Mets were the laughing stock of the National League. But things began to turn around in earnest on one fateful day in June, 1983, when one of the best trades in the history of the Mets was announced - Neil Allen and Rick Ownbey to the St. Louis Cardinals for the greatest defensive First Baseman of all-time, Keith Hernandez! From his clutch bat, to his clubhouse leadership, to his baseball intelligence, to his revolutionary fielding prowess at a position normally manned by lumbering sluggers, "Mex" was the driving force behind the Mets' run to respectability, greatness, and the 1986 World Series Championship.
This amazing poster, exclusive to SportsPosterWarehouse.com, features the 11-time Gold Glove winner doing what he did best - holding firm inside the bag at Shea Stadium on a hot summer's day. This beautiful image brings back a flood of memories of '80s Mets baseball, when Keith, Doc, Nails, Mook, Straw, and the rest of the gang turned baseball on its ear! Printed from the original photographic negative, and complete with official MLB Properties serialized hologram, this is both a stunning piece for any fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come. A brilliant, historic image now available for your wall, perfect for the home or office of any fan!
