FLUSHING, N.Y., August 4, 2021 – The New York Mets today announced the club and Marvel Entertainment are collaborating on a special two-day promotion featuring Mets infielder Pete Alonso on Thursday, August 12 and Friday, August 13. This collaboration will mark the first of its kind for the Mets and Marvel, as one of the “Amazins” is transformed into an original Super Hero, coming to life with an exclusive collector’s item bobblehead and an origin story in a Marvel comic book. Tickets are available now at Mets.com/Tickets.
On Thursday, August 12 vs. the Washington Nationals, the first 15,000 fans in attendance will receive a Polar Bear Pete Alonso Super Hero™ Comic Book. The following night, Friday, August 13 vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers, the first 25,000 arriving fans will receive a Polar Bear Pete Alonso Super Hero™ Bobblehead.
“This comic book and bobblehead are super cool,” Alonso said. “I’ve loved everything Marvel since I was a kid. It was awesome to see myself as a Super Hero and I can’t wait for Mets fans to get their hands on these, they’re going to love them.”
This collaboration builds on the Mets and Marvel’s longstanding relationship. Over the past few seasons, the Mets and Marvel have worked together to create a number of exciting exclusives, including two Noah Syndergaard bobbleheads and a t-shirt that played off of his resemblance to the Mighty Thor, and an exclusive Spider-Man bobblehead design in the Mets’ team colors. Most recently, Alonso was also involved in Marvel Comics’ Hellfire Gala, a comic book event featuring Marvel’s X-Men earlier this summer. The deal was facilitated by AthLife, Inc, Marvel’s longtime sports representative.
