I have two Shea Stadiums - one I ordered direct from DM, the other I got second-hand on Ebay - and Giants Stadium (football). I'd like to get the 1976-2008 Yankee Stadium (not the 1923-1973 version), and Madison Square Garden (preferably in hockey configuration).
I've found, although this is mainly by looking at the pictures, that not all of the Danbury Mint stadiums are of equal quality. Some of the stadiums look like they're out of proportion somewhat.
Non-Danbury stadiums I have are the 1964 Shea Stadium model given away by the Mets in 2004; for what it is, it's a nice replica. I also have a KeySpan Park replica given away by the Brooklyn Cyclones a few years ago. There's a major design error in that one; it depicts the last row of seats as being above the concourse, whereas in reality the last row is flush with it.
Actually, one of the best series of ballpark replicas to come out was Kenner's Starting Lineup "Stadium Stars" series; these had a large figure of a ballplayer standing over a miniature plastic replica of their ballpark. I bought many of these and got rid of the player just to have the stadium!
I can only imagine what McFarlane Toys would do with ballparks...
Here's the payoff pitch from Familia to Fowler, on the way... and it's IN THERE! Strike three called! The Mets win the pennant! The New York Mets have won the National League pennant! Put it in the books! The New York Mets for the first time in 15 years are champions of the National League!
