The New York Mets Have a Logo

Nov. 16, 1961 - The New York Mets gave a $1,000 check to Ray Gotto, a cartoonist, for submitting the prize-winning emblem for the new National League club. Gotto’s emblem depicts the New York City skyline, showing a church, the Williamsburg Savings Bank, the Woolworth Tower, the Empire State Building, and the U.N. The emblem is in the form of a baseball, and the buildings are colored in the former Brooklyn Dodger blue. The orange-colored letters “N.Y.” are the same style, color, and shape as those on the caps of the Giants. The word “Mets,” also in orange, runs through the skyline, and the Brooklyn Bridge, in white, runs across the bottom of the skyline.
