Its logo, a blended N and Y on a blue background, was designed by cartoonist Ray Gatto. The insignia stitched in orange represents a baseball and contains a bridge representing the union of the three boroughs of New York.
It also corresponds to the colors of the New York State flag. Mr. Met, which appeared in 1963 when they were still playing at the Polo Grounds in Northeast New York, is considered the team’s mascot.
The team’s appearance was the relocation of two MLB teams, which negatively affected the city’s image. As a result, one of the first expansion franchises was formed, replacing the clubs that left New York after the 1957 season.
