This is a 1988 NY Mets Calendar featuring Gary Carter on the cover and a Shea Stadium 25th Anniversary Commemorative Poster. The 1988 Mets Pocket Schedule is still attached. The inside front cover has a team photo and on the opposite page is the stadium layout with ticket information. The calendar runs from April 1988 through March 1989. Each month features a full page color photo of a Mets player in action with a smaller photo of another significant Shea event next to the calendar. Here's the rundown:
04/88 - Sid Fernandez / Grand Funk Railroad 1971
05/88 - Darryl Strawberry / 1st Night Game at Shea 5/6/64
06/88 - Roger McDowell / Sugar Ray Leonard vs Roberto Duran 1980
07/88 - Gary Carter / 1st All-Star Game at Shea 1964
08/88 - Ron Darling / The Beatles 1966
09/88 - Keith Hernandez / NY Giants vs New Orleans Saints 1975
10/88 - Dwight Gooden / The Who 1982
11/88 - Kevin McReynolds / Carlos Ortiz vs Ismael Laguna 1967
12/88 - Bob Ojeda / NY Jets vs Oakland Raiders 12/29/68
01/89 - Howard Johnson / Completion of 100 Mile Marathon for US National Championship 1983
02/89 - Lenny Dykstra / Pope John Paul II 1979
03/89 - Tim Teufel / Army vs Notre Dame 1965
The calendar is in pretty good condition, but does have a bit of wear and some darkening on the lower left side of the cover. The back cover has more significant discoloration from being exposed to the sun during storage. On the page opposite the inside back cover, there is just a small discoloration spot on the edge of the page. I don't know how the discoloration occurred, but it does not seem that it was ever wet, nor does it have any odor. The rest of the inside of the calendar is in very good shape (see pics).
