Well, even though i mentioned the murals inside, I was thinking more along the lines of the individual banners such as the ones surrounding the ballpark and the ones that appear on the lamp posts. Those honor the players as individuals as opposed to whatever contributions they may have made to a particular season.

I would guess that unless he goes all Yadier Molina on us, some time after he retires from baseball the Mets might "honor" him with a banner again.
Archie Bunker: All I can tell you, Edith, is I'm surprised at you! Dragging me off to a moving picture like that! It was absolutely disgusting!
Edith Bunker: Well, I'm sorry, Archie, how was I to know? I thought it was a religious picture, "Cardinal Knowledge!"
