The Team of Teams

    Was eating at Mustang Harry's on 7th last summer and this baseball card collage graced my booth. I was 15 in '86, diehard Dodger and baseball fan so on this day, awaiting French Onion soup and a burger, I spent a good long time appreciating the names and the faces of the '86 Mets -- one of the all-time team of teams but not because they won a title but because you can say (or hear someone say) '86 Mets and you know exactly what the '86 Mets meant. They conjure a special time and place. Very few teams have ever captured that spirit.

    Who are some others? Think about the essence of the question.

    (And Mustang Harry's makes a pretty good bacon cheeseburger.)

    It was technically the '68 Jets, though the Super Bowl was in January 1969.

    The 1962 Packers are widely regarded as Lombardi's best, but that was before the Super Bowl era.
