The 7 Line Army's "NY Camo" Mets jersey lost twice in the season ticket holders vote. I vowed after this years vote, that it would be dropped from the ballot forever. It has, but I just can't let this one die.
I love the all over NY camo fabric. I've had a swatch of it on my desk the last three years hoping it'd come to life. It narrowly lost as our season ticket members vote in 2017.

We gave it break from the voting in 2018, but brought it back for 2019. This year it lost again. This time to the grey sleeve throwback. I really like this seasons jersey, but I was pulling pretty hard for the NY camo. At the end of the day it's just not my decision, and I like that.
It's one of those jerseys that looks A LOT better in person rather than the photoshop mock up. Majestic hooked me up with a sample, and people were digging it at the QBC back in January. There's not much middle ground on this one. You either drool over it, or hate it.

So instead of killing the idea forever for those that share my affection for it, I switched up a couple details from the vote, like making it a pullover v-neck, and decided to release it anyway.
This will be our first ever jersey not having to do with a season ticket package, or the associated replicas we drop each year.
