    I agree...but some people were not on this thread or BBF back when that was a discussion. Based on the feedback here, the far majority wanted METS history and NOT Dodgers or Giants history. Let's keep it that way.

    Did anyone point out the missing Pepsi sign? Its been like that for a while now. Does anyone know of a new company is taken over?

    I suppose they are just cleaning the sign getting it ready for opening day it really is a beautiful sight or perhaps they are replacing it with a big All Star Game 2013 logo

    Well, I just wish the museum had more historic stuff on display.

    The Yankees have some Dodgers and Giants stuff on display:

    I'm pretty sure it's being repaired, having been damaged by Superstorm Sandy.

    How was it damaged?

    Sorry, I don't know any details, just repeating what I read here earlier. I believe someone indicated that it was damaged by the storm's wind.

    That would be SteveJRogers, and he was talking about the "HOME" in the Shea Stadium Home Run Apple (post #42688; picture in post #42657). There have been references to the Pepsi sign being "repaired," but you're the first to directly attribute it to Hurricane Sandy.

    My bad. I must have misread or misremembered the discussion. I guess the reason why I believe the sign was taken down for repairs is that it's the only explanation that makes sense to me - both in terms of timing (right after the storm) and the fact that if Pepsi had removed it as part of a plan to cease their corporate sponsorship, I think that would have been news and, as far as I can see, there has been no media report of that.

    The Pepsi sign could have been damaged by the hurricane. We don't have any evidence either way. We just have the one photo (post #42681) which shows the "S" in "Pepsi" being removed with a crane, but that doesn't really tells us anything.

    As long as a month ago, and as recently as this last Friday when I went by and glanced over from the Whitestone Expressway/GCP connection, the entire Pepsi sign was missing (not just the S). The girders above the Porch were completely blank.

    Post #42697 is evidence of the entire sign missing and everything else pretty much intact.

    Who wants to bet that the Pepsi Cola sign was taken down so that they could install a 2013 HR Derby sign there just for this season.

    What we do know is that as of recently, there is still nothing installed in place of the Pepsi sign...as seen in this video posted today by the Mets of "Mr. Met Attempts to go to Spring Training" you can see at the 1:13 mark that there is still no sign up. Not sure when it was filmed, but I would guess it was in the last week or even yesterday.

    My season ticket rep assures me the sign is not being replaced, only repaired or cleaned in some way.

    And maybe sometime later, a Shinnecock Casino where I guess the junkyards now are?

    Why don't more teams do this? I guess I know why, but just think its a good idea to have things to do before and after games.
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

    The Cirque shows happen under their own tents so it is unlikely that they will set it up in the stadium itself.

    Wow, the thought of Mr. Met driving on an Interstate scares me more than my Sisters driving! And that is saying something! Only by the grace of God, we never got into a major wreck!
