    Looks like the Mets are selling the Shea seats. 2 seats for $869. They say that they are stripping the handrests and reapainting them for indoor use. Shipping and Handling is included. You just have to add state sales tax. In NJ it's 7%, so 2 seats stripped, repainted and shipped is only $929.83. That really is a good price. Well, considering.

    I'm thinking the Yankee Stadium seats would go for about $1000 for 2. But I just read they'll try to sell them for $1923. Great, just great!!!!

    Stay Current?

    Why would the Yankees and Mets immediately deny the sale of both ballparks to them when they are the ones initiating the talks?

    NY Post headline:
    YANKEES & METS WANT THEIR CUT$
    MAKE SECRET PITCH TO CITY FOR STADIUM SCRAP SELL-OFFS

    Where are you receiving your info?

    The NY Post reported in late March that both the Yankees and the Mets are in negotiations to buy the remains of Yankee and Shea Stadiums to sell them as souvenirs.

    Actually that was probably the original plans for the sale of memorabilia.

    This actually make sense to cut the teams in on the process, since they can market to fans better than the City. I'm sure the City will get there cut , however the Yankees and Mets will receive the net of the proceeds.

    PLEASE don't bring it to Home Depot.

    Home Depot treats their employees horrible

    I used to work at Home Depot, so I know.

    I worked my ass off, and they called me lazy

The ad pictures a pair of Field Level seats (with padding on the seat), has the headline "OWN A PIECE OF SHEA!", says "Own a Pair of Seats from Shea Stadium only through Mets-Steiner Collectibles! (Quantities are very limited)," and there's a phone number you can call for more information.

    So that's how the Mets are going to sell their seats.
    I thought Steinbrenner owned Steiner Sports

    If Steiner is involved, hold onto your wallets. Those seats will be jacked up about 3x what they actually should be sold for. And fools will buy them at that price.

    I will bet you right here, right now, if Steiner is selling Yankee Stadium seats, they will be $3-4,000 a pair.

    I just can't remember the name of it. Any help?

    I'm also very interested.

    Honestly, I hope you are right. I would like a single seat myself.


    As "look(ing) like crap", they were exposed to the elements for fifty years. Some collectors like to sand them down and repaint them, others believe that doing so destroys the authenticity and the value.
    I was just saying that they were very expensive and they're not even refinished.

    Of course they'll want to maximize revenue, but if they don't break them up they will have almost no single seats to sell. Three seats share two sets of hardware and arm rests. There's no way to sell all the seats unless you sell them in huge groups. And while most box seats are grouped in relatively small numbers of fours (and a few twos), the upper tier seats are set in long rows. So how can they not break them up? Who's going to buy 25 connected seats?



    Sometimes you get lucky. Here are a couple auctions from Lelands.com:
    Sold for $1,031 on 10/31/07
    Sold for $1,134 on 9/22/2007
    Sold for $1,281 on 8/27/2006
