On May 10, 1967, the Athletics traded Ed Charles to the New York Mets for Larry Elliot and $50,000. He would be the oldest regular on his new team. In 1968, he led the Mets in home runs with 15. In 1969, he shared third base duties with rookie Wayne Garrett as a member of the Miracle Mets team that unexpectedly won the World Series, after finishing dead last in five of its first seven seasons and 9th in a 10-team National League in the other two. He was the oldest of the Miracle Mets at age 36. Ed Charles has hand signed this New York Mets 8x10 Photo. Certificate of Authenticity from Athlon Sports Collectibles.
