The Tidewater Tides - the New York Mets’ AAA affiliate of the International League - ended the 1987 season with 81 wins, first in the league. Randy Milligan was a one-man wrecking crew, batting .326 with 29 home runs, 103 RBIs and 99 runs scored in 457 at-bats. Kevin Elster hit .310 with 74 RBI and 83 runs scored.

A Mets team logo centers the opposite side, with vertical team-colored enamel stripes running behind it. “NEW YORK” reads at the top. The inside of the band is stamped “LGB 10K”.
