Thread: Shea Stadium

  1. #14151
    What you seem to describe is the 2nd floor. When the Diamond Club elevator doors opened on the 2nd floor (Prior to the circa 1995, modernization of the Mets offices) you could see directly in the glass doors and glass frontage on the office. There was a Mets logo and the legacy corporate name…New York National Baseball Club Inc.

    That's it! You nailed it. That is the club I remember.

    It seems like Shea had the most narrow concourses of all the cookie cutters. Anyone here agree?

    I visited all the cc's but Fulton County. RFK's concourses are much wider than Shea's were.

    Speaking of The Diamond Club, other than the Hodges and Seaver ones (both currently in the lobbies of their respective Citi Field enterances), I wonder whatever became of the HOF busts?

    Presumptively, there are resting in some storage facility.
    They along with the Championship trophies made for an impressive but simple display.

    Did the Mets know you were in there looking at the busts and trophy? Looks very Blair Witch... ha ha

    I believe the HOF busts are in the Citi Field museum.

    Those are plaques created for the opening of the HOF in 2010. Not the busts that were in the DCL Lobby from the creation of the HOF through 2008.

    This type of plate is called a "Charger," (derived from the French word "Changer" - to change), which is set on the dinner table as a decorative piece, and removed when the first course is brought out.

    And here's a fun article from the New York Times (October 29, 2000) about the celebrity scene at Shea during the 2000 Subway Series with the Yankees. The Diamond Club is mentioned.

    From an eBay listing, Shea Stadium Diamond Club menu. The date wasn't specified, but the menu selections and prices scream mid to late 1960s.

    A dollar in '64 is worth about $7.60 today in 2015. So multiply those costs by 7.6 to get what they could be today. If this is a '64 menu.

    Rest in Peace-Nelson Doubleday

    Nelson Doubleday.jpg
    Mr. Doubleday was the product of an aristocratic family but seemed like an affable and likeable fellow. I took this picture of him on Camera Day 1980. It was his first season as the Owner.

    By the way, the reason Mr. Doubleday is in shadow is because the picture was taken in the dark corridor with bright sun in the background.
    Mr. Doubleday did not ask to remain unidentified.

    A treasure trove of Kiner's Korners! From 1980, 1985 and 1987, bonus one with Doubleday from Wrigley Field in 1985.
