This is an original press photo. New York -- Farewell Fans -- The New York Mets' Tom Seaver wipes his face as he tries to make a farewell address to sports correspondents Thursday after cleaning out his locker a Shea Stadium. Seaver was traded to the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday. While attempting to make a few comments for Mets fans, Seaver was unable to speak and finally wrote a message on a reporter's notebook.

George Thomas "Tom" Seaver (born November 17, 1944), nicknamed "Tom Terrific" and "The Franchise", is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. He pitched from 1967-1986 for four different teams in his career, but is noted primarily for his time with the New York Mets. During a 20-year career, Seaver compiled 311 wins, 3,640 strikeouts, 61 shutouts and a 2.86 earned run average. In 1992, he was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the highest percentage ever recorded (98.84%), and has the only plaque at Cooperstown wearing a New York Mets hat. As of 2010, Tom Seaver and Gil Hodges (played for the Mets in 1962-63) are the only Met players to have their jersey numbers retired by the team (Gil Hodges' number was retired as a manager even though he also played for the Mets) (Wikipedia).Photo measures 7 x 9inches.
