Mets Reveal 50th Anniversary Logo

The Mets plan to celebrate their 50th anniversary throughout the upcoming summer in Flushing.

They revealed the first portion of those plans on Wednesday, when David Wright, first baseman Ike Davis and outfielder Lucas Duda helped unveil a commemorative logo at Citi Field as part of the team's anniversary agenda.

Similar to the franchise's traditional cityscape emblem, the new logo sports a gold 50th anniversary banner superimposed on top of the New York City skyline and will be featured on the Mets' pinstriped primary home jerseys next season.

Also unveiled was an anniversary promotion in which fans are encouraged to submit photographs displaying their Mets pride and, in 100 words or fewer, write about their favorite Mets memory. Fans can submit their photos and memories on, with one grand-prize winner receiving a pair of 2012 season tickets at Citi Field. Five runners-up will also receive prizes.

The Mets played the first game in franchise history on April 11, 1962, following a four-year absence of NL baseball in New York City. In designing Citi Field, the Mets drew upon various elements of former Dodgers home Ebbets Field, including the stadium's entrance rotunda.

Mets to officially unveil New Mets Primary Home Uniforms Tomorrow at Citi Field

According to ESPN NY's Adam Rubin, The Mets will have a press conference on Wednesday at Citi Field to discuss 50th anniversary plans for the team. One major item is the reintroduction of the early 1960s pinstriped jerseys, which include "Mets" in script in blue and orange and no black shadow.

The pinstriped jersey is expected to be the primary jersey used at home in 2012. The other jerseys will look comparable to recent seasons, but the black shadow by the lettering on the chest will disappear.

The Mets also will have a patch on the sleeve recognizing the 50th anniversary of the club.

Mets plan to unveil uniform changes and other 50th anniversary plans Wednesday

The Mets have called a news conference for next Wednesday to unveil uniform changes and other 50th-anniversary plans.

Rumblings are the primary home uniform will be close to the 1960s version -- with pinstripes, a Mets script logo in blue and orange (and no black shadow) and blue hats.

The black uniform tops should remain as an alternate jersey, but be worn only occasionally. The bright white jersey without pinstripes also should be around (also minus the black shadow on the lettering), but the pinstriped version should primarily be worn.

The Mets also are expected to have a patch on the uniform commemorating the 50th anniversary -- basically the commonly used city skyline and "50th anniversary."

Word is the bobbleheads in 2012 also may be past Mets greats.

It is rumored that Banner Day even may make a comeback, this is just pure speculation and not guaranteed.
