This brief clip was shown on a NY Mets post-season highlights show back in 1969. Through some diligent research, I've identified the plays on this reel as follows:

1. Vada Pinson hits into double play vs. Gary Gentry (Sept. 24, 1969)
2. Al Weis great catch down 1st base line off Mike Shannon (Sept. 24, 1969)
3. Donn Clendenon HR vs. St. Louis's Dave Giusti (catcher is Tim McCarver) Sept. 24, 1969
4. Tom Seaver gets 2B vs. Cubs' Fergie Jenkins, finishing with flopperoo headfirst slide, then Art Shamsky gets a home run vs. Jenkins (who gave up lots of them). Game of Sept. 9, 1969
5. Don Cardwell Serves up to Johnny Briggs (PHI) who lines out to Ken Boswell (Sept 6, 1969)
6. Ron Stone hits a Nolan Ryan pitch for a 3-6-3 double play (Sept. 7, 1969)
7. Don Money (PHI) lines out to Ron Swoboda, who makes a great catch, on a pitch from Tug McGraw (Sept. 6, 1969)

Then some more familiar World Series Highlights: Tommie Agee home run & catches & Eddie Kranepool HR.

This was replayed some time in the 80's, which is how I got it. I'm not myself a Mets fan but I generously post it for the enjoyment of Mets fans who are more used to disappointment than success.
