The franchise was founded in 1962. The Mets are one of two major league teams based in New York City with the other one being the New York Yankees. The team never finished better than second to last place until the 1969 “Miracle Mets” who beat the Baltimore Orioles in the 1969 World Series. At the time, this was considered one of the biggest upsets in World Series history.
The New York Mets logo has had four three variations, including the original design back in 1963. See the different New York Mets logo designs that they have had over the years.
