2002 - MetroStars calendar

2002 - The Might Metros fan club distributed a calendar to the members. The calendar ran from April 2002 - March 2003, with an individual MetroStar player featured each month. The centerfold was a duplicate of the min-poster, without the Mighty Metros logo in the lower left hand corner. Each month also featured a "Did You Know" with interesting information about the MetroStars. The "Did You Know" from August to November 2002 and January 2003 were bilingual advertisements for Palmolive-Colgate products, the sponsor of the calendar..
