I think that's Duke Snider on the left. He played a year or two on the Mets, but it wasn't the 1969 Mets, it was earlier than that.

thanks for the help

anyone know when the pic was taken?

also, is it considered rare to have them all there for the pic or is this just a typical photo op?

After looking at some stats, Duke Snider only played for the Mets in 1963, so you can assume that's when the pic was taken. If you were to ask me, I would say that the reason behind the photo is that they were all connected to the Brooklyn Dodgers at one time. Also, even though Hodges hasn't made the HOF, I think they assumed he would - thus making it a would-be three Hall of Famer photo.
