Mets accidentally give out souvenir with Phillies logo on it


The New York Mets did something over the weekend that is so New York Mets we would be remiss if we failed to mention it. The first 15,000 fans who arrived at Citi Field to watch the Mets get their asses handed to them by the San Francisco Giants were given a toy truck from W.B. Mason. At least one of them had a team logo on it that was not a Mets logo.

As Justin Klugh of Philly.com pointed out, a fan tweeted a photo of his souvenir truck during the game. It had a Philadelphia Phillies logo on it.

That could have happened to any team, right? When you give away 15,000 free items, one of them is bound to have a division rival’s team logo on it. It happens all the time, just like a team accidentally emailing its general manager’s credit card info to the media. All standard stuff.

    This is the job I’d like to have, quality control of the sports industry. They pay me a million per year and every day I just check the appearance and spelling of items being made. I’ll save people 20 million just by having a brain cell.

    But then there would be far fewer collectibles on the market due to the lack of mistakes that make them so valuable!
