These are custom made for The 7 Line Army and once they're gone, we will not be making more.
T7LA season ticket members get an authentic cut of this jersey as part of their package.
What's the difference between authentic and replica? The replica does not have the sleeve patches, they're not customized with name/number and the Mets across the chest is a printed twill instead of chain stitch. Small differences. Much like an authentic "player" jersey which retails for around $300 and a replica blank which is around $100. 
The 7 Line Army single game home tickets will come with a jersey style t-shirt in 2018, but if you'd like to match the season members, this jersey is the closest thing to it.
Majestic Cool Base® material is a revolutionary lightweight and breathable jersey with The 7 Line Army / New York Mets colors and styling. This athletic modern fit jersey features Cool Base moisture wicking technology so you stay cool and comfortable as the game heats up. Cheer with The 7 Line Army at Citi Field or anywhere our Mets are playing in 2018!

• Cool Base® Jersey
• 100% Polyester Cool Base fabric for lightweight, breathable feel
• Mets official logo printed tackle twill decoration
• T7L logo on upper left chest 
• Tagless neck label and The 7 Line Army lockertag
• MLB Batter patch on center back neck
These are sold blank. Personalization is not an option through us, but feel free to add your name/number once it arrives. 
This is an advanced sale item. Any other items ordered at the same time as this item will not ship until the advance sale item ships. If you can’t wait, place a separate order. The jerseys will ship for delivery before Opening Day.

Royal Giants ERROR New York Mets game jersey MLB HOLO

Pitcher Jerry Blevins 2015 size 48 2015  game issued TBTC Royal Giants jersey from the June 20, 2015 game at CITI Field vs. the Atlanta Braves.  Flannel type material.
This JERSEY was ISSUED to be worn by Blevins in this game, but, this jersey had a bit of an error, and, wasn't worn..and, it wasn't authenticated until 2017...
When this jersey had the team name sewn to the front of the jersey, the "I" in Giants was left off, creating the unique "ROYAL GANTS" jersey!  How often are errors made to team issued jerseys...pretty rare variation.

Team Issued Jersey

Hologram number JB406482

S2 E1: OABT season 2 premiere with guest Marc Carig - Mets talk and more

Click here for soundcloud

The guys are back for another season, and there’s plenty to talk about, even if the Mets haven’t made many moves of substance. Darren Meenan and Brian Erni discuss the Anthony Swarzak signing, Omar Minaya’s return, and where The 7 Line Army is heading on the road in 2018. Plus, Newsday’s Marc Carig hops on to talk about his recent scathing coverage of ownership, and what finally made him take up the cause. Crack a cold one and settle in to kick off another season of OABT! 

An "Orange and Blue Thing" is something that Mets fans can relate to, so that's what we talk about. The comments section turns in to a live chat room, and the fan engagement is cool to see.

Co-hosted by Darren Meenan and Brian Erni, our episodes are taped live each Thursday at 6pm Eastern. We're a pretty visual show, so if you can, try to catch the live stream on For now give a listen and if you're in to it, share with your friends, subscribe and leave a review. LGM 2018!

The Mets Boycotts/Mets Fans United

  If you guys feel like you are going to make any difference on trying to get the Wilpons either to sell or seen money more power to you. My personal stance is that I have a feeling it won't work. But what do I know. If this is how you want to spend your energy great. I am not going to try to rain on your parade. There are some folks that "get" what it means to boycott the team and where the money comes from and goes. I think the folks who really are going to boycott the Mets are the ones who aren't going to check out the Mets in any way except in the boxscores the day after the games. I guess that's the best way of not giving the Wilpons/Mets any money. If you really feel that you can gain any traction with this, then great.

If you are going to boycott the Wilpons, do you boycott the building of the new Islanders arena in Elmont? Do you boycott SNY? Do you boycott BAM? Do you boycott anything that makes money for the Wilpons? What about if you find out you live/work in a Wilpon owned property?

I saw someone write the other day that they were only going to go to the parking lots outside of Citi Field during games and hang out there with their friends and drink beer and listen to the game out there either with WOR or the MLB App. Guess who gets the money from the parking lot and the radio deal and the central fund from the MLB App.

What are the rules for the boycott? What's not allowed? Just wondering.

Todd Hundley Home Run Ball

Not  Mets ball but would be cool to get signed..

Here we have a game used homerun ball hit by Todd Hundley of the Dodgers. This ball was hit in the loge section where
 I was sitting and the ball bounced to me.  I attended the game hoping to get a homerun ball from Sammy Sosa, but instead 
Todd hit this in this area. This is one of only a few homeruns that have been hit in that portion of the stadium. This ball was hit 
on August 9, 2000 and the ticket stub is included in the casing. I believe I only showed this once in the many years that I've 
had it and I sealed the sides with a label that states the game date and the player that hit it. The game shows some Browning 
due  to game use and has a blue mark on it from the impact of the bat. With modern technology, you can research and possibly 
find game tape or footage of the actual home run. This is a great collectors item for any baseball fan, Dodgers fan or game used 
memorabilia collector. This ball can be yours for only $100. All sales are final/no refunds/no returns/serious buyers only. Shipping 
on this one will be $8 USPS priority mail. 
Any questions feel free to ask. Thank you.

Lookie, Lookie Who is back! Omar Minaya

Hey Wilpons, this isn’t what we mean about honoring the past. Special Assistant to the GM? Wasn’t that Terry Collins title too? Also why do the Mets need Omar? What are the up to?

From The NY Post-

“The Mets named former general manager Omar Minaya — who spent the last three years with baseball's players association — a special assistant to Sandy Alderson on Friday morning.

“Omar has a long history with the Mets,” Alderson said in a statement. “He has served the club well in many different areas. Omar will be a resource on scouting and player development, will consult on player acquisitions and will serve as a community ambassador. We are very happy to have him back in the organization.””

Ed Kranepool and the NY Mets

QBC 2014 photo by

This is what the Wilpons don't get. Embrace the Mets history. If everyone including former players are taking shots at you as owners, why wouldn't you think there is a problem going on? It's like Mr Burns cloned himself twice, bought the Mets, put his clones in charge and is oblivious to how people perceive them. "Smithers....I mean Jay. The Fans, the media, and our employees all love us right?"
Smithers  I mean Jay," Yes Sirs. They think you are the bees knees."

 Jeff come on. Stop being petty because someone said they can run the team better then you and your dad. I got an idea. Why not step up to the challenge and run the ball club better? "Hey we bought the Syracuse Chiefs so the players don't have to travel all the way from Vegas when called up now!" Rumor has it you guys bought the Chiefs because you burnt all the bridges in  AAA and the only way you could get a team back east was to buy it. Purely rumors though.

From the NY TIMES.
According to Jay Horwitz, the Mets’ longtime spokesman, the trouble stems from a remark that Kranepool made perhaps five or six years ago to Jeff Wilpon, the Mets’ chief operating officer and the son of Fred Wilpon, the team’s principal owner.

The remark, Horwitz said, came during an annual team dinner and apparently occurred during the period when the Mets, under serious financial pressure because of their involvement in the Bernard Madoff fraudscheme, were looking to recruit investors to buy a minority stake in the club.

As Horwitz tells it, “Ed approached Jeff in front of a lot of people and said, ‘I hear you are selling shares in your team.”’

And then, according to Horwitz, Kranepool added: “I don’t want shares. I want to buy the whole team so I can run it better than you and your father.”’
Asked about that remark, Kranepool remembered the exchange somewhat differently. Kranepool’s name had emerged around that time in connection with a group that was expressing interest in buying the Mets outright. That effort didn’t go anywhere, but Kranepool said Wilpon had made a disparaging remark to him about it.
“One thing led to another, and we had some words,’’ Kranepool said.
The result has been disruption in a relationship that began when Kranepool, as a teenager out of James Monroe High School in the Bronx, briefly made it to the Mets in 1962, the team’s inaugural season. After that, he found a niche for himself, a 6-foot 3, left-handed hitter who never had more than 16 home runs in a season and who finished with a career average of .261.

Need Last Minute Gifts For A Mets Fan? @QBConvention Can Help..

  I wanted you guys to know that we have less then a 100 total tickets left for the QBC.The Holidays are still around and we don't want you to get caught short on not getting tickets for you or your loved ones. This is going to be the biggest and best QBC that we have had so far.

 Get an insight on how it is to arrive in the big leagues from someone who just got here with Pitcher Chris Flexen. Find out what kind of adjustments he's made going from Double A ball to the majors. Find out his favorite tv shows, best moments with the Mets, and more. Oh yeah. Did I mention that Dennis Holden (@DHAPSHOW) and myself are hosting this panel? If that doesn't get you motivated to go, I don't know what will.

We have Brandon Nimmo. WOR's own Pete McCarthy will be hosting this panel. Wondering what it's like to be in the bigs for a few years now? How was it being a part of the 2015 and 2016 season? How does he feel about the upcoming 2018 season?

Former Mets All Star Catcher Todd Hundley will be doing a panel also. Remember the Todd Squad? How about the 41 HR season? What is he up to now?

 We will have the State of the Mets panel Hosted by Mark Healey from Gotham Baseball. He and a great panel of guests will be discussing where the Mets are right now and where the team is heading into the future.

 The Uniform Panel Hosted by Orange and Blue Thing's Brian Erni. What was your favorite Mets uni? What Uni was part of the biggest moments of Mets History? Discuss and find out here.

 We also have two other panels that we haven't revealed yet but you'll love them. One is a returning panel from the past and one is a brand new HOT panel.

 Don't forget that each ticket comes with at least one autograph ticket that can be used for any (1) of the three players from that day. If you get the two autograph package you can either get 2 autos from one player or 2 from any combo of players. So you can get one from Hundley and one from Nimmo or both from Hundley or both from Flexen as an example.

Mascots? Did you ask if there are going to be any mascots this year? Whatcha think? Of course there will be.

Vendors? Yep we got those too. Artists, memorabilia, Game used vendors!!!!

Jan 20th 2018 is the date. Katch Astoria in Astoria Queens is the place. Doors open at 11:30 am. Grab your tickets here at If all the tickets sell out online, there will not be any sold at the door.
