St.Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, which is always fun. The Mets, keeping with their tradition, will wear a special Green uniform set, and they (and some other affiliates) have some pretty cool merchandise for sale for St.Patrick’s Day.
So, I thought today would be a cool day to do a MetsPolice style post, going around the web, taking screenshots, and giving analysis on what’s out there.
First off, speaking about MetsPolice, Shannon Shark the founder, has been tweeting for a while about the old “Mr.O’Met” caps and how the could be perceived as a race issue, which, I didn’t see at first, but starts to make some sense, and I thought that considering that the Mets have gone away from it the last few years, they might have catched on to that, but, according to tomorrow’s gameday promotion, I guess not…..
This is a cool promotion, not something I would wear, but something that is festive and is St.Patrick’s themed.
On the field, the Mets will be sporting these Diamond Era caps:
These caps are pretty cool, something I would actually consider buying one day if I found it on clearance for under $20 dollars. I kind of like the side patch with the clover, and the darker colored brim.
The uniforms haven’t been announced yet, but I’d assume it’ll be the same thing they usually wear with green everywhere there is blue.
There is also a lot of other miscellaneous green Mets apparel with the green swapped in for the royal blue.
Aside from that, there is a pretty cool The 7 Line St.Patrick’s Day cap & hoodie combo for a great price. The combo features the Emoji Mr.Met in Hoodie form, with a New Era snapback cap, which for the price point, is a pretty good deal.
So that’s St.Patrick’s Day merchandise for 2017. Personally, I would highly recommend saving your money for something a bit better, like Opening Day themed products, or an actual Mets cap that they will wear more than once, but these styles are very good nonetheless.
Happy St.Patrick’s Day, and thanks for reading.
