Graffiti pioneer and artist Futura 2000 is releasing a limited edition collaborative Futura Laboratories capsule collection with the New York Mets. The collection comprises a jersey, baseball cap, and a ‘Pointman’ vinyl figure and will drop at the Mets vs. Pirates game on July 27.
The collection sees Futura 2000’s signature graphic typography feature on the team’s merch. A lifelong Mets fan, he created this capsule in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the New York Mets 1969 Championship Season. The artist will also be throwing out the first pitch of the game to commemorate the collaboration.
The pieces are available only for game day attendees on July 27th. Game tickets are available for pre-order now on the Mets official website. Fans will be able to pick up their VIP packages on game day at Citi Field, where Futura 2000 will also be doing a live site-specific painting, as well as meet-and-greets. Preview the capsule collection above.
