Actually if you look closer, he played for the Giants. Mathewson played his entire career for them, save for his final year (1916), when he played for the Reds. The Mets adopted the Giants old logo when they came around in 1962, probably to show some connection to the former New York based Giants.
Yep monkeys: They used the Dodgers blue and the Giants orange as a tribute to the two teams that left NY for LA. (But I think Dawgbones knew that).
