Rainout Special !

Thought you all would like to see the original sketch I did when I designed the Racing stripe uniform for The Mets back in 1980. Just click on it to see the whole thing. Enjoy!

  1. Joe: You should design a t-shirt for your Met fan base to purchase! I know it would be a sellout!

  4. Favorite uniform in the history of any sport. I can't believe you designed the uni! I hope to get a Brooks or Straw jersey at some point in my life.

  5. It's a pretty sweet uni, the drawing is awesome too. The fact that you designed it is amazing! I wish they did a retro day with these unis.

  6. Hey I'm new here but I love this. Why don't you either sell some of these drawings as prints or sell the whole book for one of the seasons? Great stuff, its rare someone does clever and smart art about sports.

  7. Hi Tony thanks,
    Iam talking to publishers right now about putting out this journal as is in book form. All the pictures are in a small 3x5" journal.

    I know everyone wants something from the book. I have to figure out whats the best way to go. I'll let you all know when I know.

    Thanks
    Enjoy it.

  11. I love this artwork! New to the site, but enjoying it a great deal. Maybe for the next rain out or off day we can see some concept art for future Mets uniforms? Maybe with enough fan support we might even see it at Citi in 2011.

  12. That's amazing! I will admit at first I didn't like the uniforms, but they have grown on me over the years and they now represent the best of times in Mets' history. I now own a Gooden jersey in your design.

    Can you send the Mets a sketch of the original (1960's) Mets uniform - with NO BLACK - so they go back to the real Mets colors - BLUE and ORANGE (no black!) - I would love if the Mets went back to the 60's uniforms and as an alternate wore your 80's design.
