1964 Mets vs Giants Footage

I found some pretty cool footage a fan put up on YouTube from his home movie collection. The scoreboard has got to be my favorite part of Shea at the time. I’ve never seen it so small before. It was also cool to see Mays & McCovey in the footage as well – it makes them seem like real people to me being all I’ve ever know about them was through books, photos and MLB footage. To see them in home video format just gave it a little more realism…if that makes any sense.

    Camera's for publick use didn't have sound back then, Not many bells or whistles either. I remember being home on leave in '64, We went to the Worlds Fair and watched a Mets Braves doubleheader. Double headers have went the way of the camera of that era, Imagine getting a two for one anything in a sporting event now?

      I envy the fact that you were there for the beginning – so cool!! Did you ever see any Brooklyn Dodgers games? New York GIants?

      I remember there being double headers last year or the year before – but I moved to PA, so that was just a bummer for me. If I was still in NY, I would have been there!
