When Walter J Shea Memorial Stadium opened 17 April 1964, no one, not even big-thinking New Yorkers, could have predicted the extraordinary series of events that would unfold there over the next 44 years. From a memorable first decade that culminated in the most amazing Mets team of all time led by the indomitable Tom Seaver, to the birth of the Jets and the emergence of Broadway Joe, to concerts which included the Beatles among a Who's Who list of rock and rollers that have played there through the years, to pugilists, a Pope, and the star-crossed 1986 World Series champion Mets, Shea proved a most worthy venue for a city steeped in centre stages. This is a must-own picture book of memories and moments for generations of New Yorkers who grew up fans of the Jets and Mets, and is sure to keep the magic (and miseries) alive forever in this unique, collectible volume.
