Mets Merchandise Mania Sweeps Through New York as They Head to the World Series
Now that the New York Mets are headed to their first World Series in 15 years, merchandise is flying off the shelves.
At the crack of dawn fans flocked to a Modell's sporting goods store in Times Square to score t shirts, baseballs and hats.
They were willing to wait on long lines even before they headed to work.
The store manager told INSIDE EDITION: "I've never seen so many Mets fans in my life, its great! It's so much fun."
The hottest items are those that feature home run hitter Daniel Murphy.
The manager also said: "It's all Mets today, I haven't seen anything like this. Last time they won I was just a kid, so this is great."
Unlike the prediction in Back to the Future Part II that the Chicago Cubs would win the World Series, the Mets buried the Cubs in Wrigley Field Wednesday night– 8-3 in a four-game sweep.
As the Mets celebrated in the Windy City, there was a somber moment at an empty CitiFied in Queens, New York Wednesday night as a memorial for slain NYPD officer Randolph Holder who had been gunned down in a shootout by a career criminal, earlier in the day, was held at the team's home ground.
