Mets' logo change had fans in a panic (PHOTO)

Sharp-eyed Mets fans blew up the Internet Monday night after they noticed that the team's longtime skyline logo had been slightly altered on the team's social-media sites. 

The squared-off top of the United Nations building on the far right had been replaced with the slanted rooftop of the building formerly owned by Citicorp — which pays the Mets $25 million annually for the naming rights to Citi Field.

The Metsies screamed sellout, even though the Manhattan building isn't even associated with Citicorp anymore.

The logo was eventually switched back to the correct version — the one that has remained virtually unchanged since 1961

A team spokesman said the Mets regretted the error and that the logo wasn't changed, but offered no real explanation for the  Citi-inspired version.

Who even knew that was the UN Building in the first place?
