Vintage backgrounds: Shea Stadium first appearance?

Shea Stadium opened in 1964, so the Mets photos in that set were all in the Polo Grounds. Except for this last series rookie stars card, both of which appear to be in Shea Stadium. There is another rookies card that might have one photo at Shea, but this would appear to be the ballpark's cardboard debut.


  1. Cool! Nice sleuthing. So is this Shea Stadium's rookie card, too?

  2. Wow. Very cool detective work.
