Living in Boston, I did not have a chance to go to the last game in Yankee Stadium. I was not able to score tickets to the All-Star Game, and Opening Day in the new Stadium is on the first day of Passover, so that is not going to happen either. Missing all of these moments has led me to resolve to obtain a piece of the old stadium to compensate for having watched those major events on television. The demolition of the Stadium to create collectibles will happen in the next few weeks, and the struggling economy may cause some previously exoirbatantly priced items to drop into the price range of a typical fan:
The old Yankee Stadium will be chopped up and sold to fans in little pieces as part of a $10 million-plus deal the team struck with the city, The Post has learned.
The payment will give the team the right to sell city-owned portions of the ballpark, including all 57,000 seats, the foul poles, dugouts and even the urinals sources familiar with the deal said.
The team already owned the grass, dirt, lockers, bases and outfield walls…..
Shea Stadium seats were sold for $869 a pair last year, and at the time, some speculated that Yankee Stadium seats could go for closer to $2,000 a pair.
“The seats are where the money is, but in this economy, it’s tough to put a value on sports collectibles,” said Mike Heffner, of auction house Lelands.com.
I would love a pair of seats, but they are likely to be too expensive no matter what the state of the economy. I will probably be relegated to the grass/dirt type of memorabilia. Are you going to get anything? If money were no object, what would you choose?
