About Russ Gompers

In October of 1969, I slept at Shea Stadium to get my play-off and World Series tickets.

 

On October 3rd 1986, my dad passed away. As I sat at every game rooting on my team, I watched as me and my dad helped the Mets become World Champs. Who would have thought that 7 years later I would have a business that was doing the stitching for the NY Mets. It’s been a dream come true. The fantasy ride has taken me into the clubhouse with all the players – to many games – home and away and to Japan to open up the 2000 season. It is truly amazing – I love doing what I do and I try to make everyone’s uniforms awesome so that they feel like “Pro’s” too.
