The 1970s was a roller coaster decade for the Mets.

Fresh off their first championship in 1969, the Mets played well from 1970-1972 despite not making the playoffs in any of those seasons. Then, in 1973, the team came out of nowhere to win the National League pennant.

From 1974-1976, the team played reasonably well, but from 1977-1979, the Mets came completely undone, and became one of the worst teams in the league.

During this decade, the Mets saw their fair share of players that played well, as well as other players who simply did not live up to the hype. The late 1960s core stayed strong through the middle of the decade, until the vast majority got traded away.

Here is the Mets' 1970s All-Decade Team.
