While he played for multiple teams in his career, including several years at the beginning with the Dodgers, Mike Piazza is mostly remembered for his time with the New York Mets. The consistent All-Star is highly regarded by fans of the team and a signed photo is sure to be a top gift option.
Arguably the top player of all-time for the Mets, Tom Seaver was a dominant pitcher who spent the first half of his Hall of Fame career with New York. "Tom Terrific" is very popular with collectors and a signed baseball offers a great gift option.
The one consistent part of the current Mets for the past decade, David Wright is the most popular player and the team captain. Already the holder of most team records, Wright will surely go down as an all-time great for the Mets. Signed photos offer an ideal gift option for current fans.
"I'm Keith Hernandez!" Even without his acting stint on Seinfeld, Keith Hernandez was a popular player for the Mets and remembered fondly. Hernandez was part of the team's 1986 title, which remains the last championship for the Mets. A signed bat offers an appealing display piece that is not too rough on the wallet.
Known by many as "Doc," Dwight Gooden was a terrific pitcher for the Mets and part of their 1986 World Series team. Gooden remains a fan favorite and his signed photo presents a great budget option.
Another key piece of the 1986 championship team, Darryl Strawberry is remembered for his towering home runs and clutch hitting. A signed baseball, especially one that notes the 1986 title, is a fantastic gift option.
An expected trio of Gooden, Strawberry and Mike Tyson makes an unlikely, but very cool, signed Mets piece. A video from that details the events leading up to that picture can be seen here.
Signed gear for David Wright might be too steep for some and this framed poster offers a nice alternative that is more affordable but still has a quality look.
While he might be more thought of as a member of the Expos, Gary Carter enjoyed a successful period with the Mets. The deceased Hall of Fame catcher remains a fan favorite and this framed collage is a great way to remember the former star. Also, view other plaques and collages for the Mets here.
Honoring two pitchers that were drafted by the Mets, this framed photo features former great Dwight Gooden and current star Matt Harvey with an appealing design.

Baseball cards are a popular option for fans, but they are not as simple to buy because they are so specific. One option we recommend for budget gifts or stocking stuffers is New York Mets team sets. Some are sealed and some are hand-collated, but the result is the same. Make sure to verify the year of the card and the players included to make sure you are getting what you expect.
