“We hope that fans appreciate the opportunity to see, and even get their picture taken with this unique piece of baseball memorabilia,” said Brien Kelley, Area Vice President of Operations for Queens and Brooklyn, Time Warner Cable. “We invite all Mets fans to come visit our store at Queens Center to take a photo with the trophy and, mostly importantly, bring the Mets good luck this weekend.”

“We have displayed a Babe Ruth bat and a T-206 Honus Wagner card in New York in the past and the response from fans has been great,” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “Since most World Series trophies are on players’ mantles at their home, we are thrilled to give Mets fans a chance to see one from one of the most popular players in Mets history.”
