Throwback jerseys

Howie Rose just mentioned on WFAN that the Mets will be wearing throwback jerseys for the first 3 games against the Giants this weekend (Fri-Sun).

More on the throwbacks from Howie Rose... - they are designed after jerseys that the New York Giants wore around the turn of the 20th century. Interesting since the San Francisco Giants are in town this weekend. Maybe the Giants can wear throw backs from their days in New York.

Update 3:52pm - from Adam Rubin's blog (via, the Mets will wear "cream-colored jerseys" featuring an "oversized blue 'NY' on the front and a Mr. Met patch on the right sleeve".

The jerseys will be auctioned off to benefit the Mets foundation.
The Mets have an official release as well.
