  • I don't mean to sound like a jerk or anything, but those photos have been seen before and don't belong in this thread. There's a Yankee Stadium Pre-Renovation thread and all of it can be found there.

      • No reason to be sorry, just go check out the Pre-Renovation thread. You can spend hours looking over all the pictures on it, there's some great stuff.

          • 40,000 seats in saleable condition

            20,000 pairs of seats

            Pairs of Stadium seats: ranging from $1499 - $1999;

            At a minimum, that's $29,980,000. Steiner paid $11.5 million for all of the cities items within the stadium. I can understand the screaming from Assemblyman Brodsky.

            The Shea seats at $900/pair seem like a bargain now.

              There are packages not listed on the site that are nice... I got a commemoritive seat (actual seat back and seat, renovated sides), Yogi Berra signed ball, ticket collage, a framed "I want to thank the good lord...", and $50 back for $949.. that with a pair of untouched seats is $1,650.. they had different ones also.

                  I also don't understand why steiner is breaking up the rows of 3 and 4 seats in them...why not just price them 750 per and not detach those...

                    What I want to know is does this mean there weren't any full, A, or B plan holders in 329-339 ? Because the Yankees are charging $500 more ($2000) for those people to request their specific seats. But then why are they being crated in the same box before people have had the chance to request them? But if they're all labelled properly, then why do you have to pay an extra $500?? Something's not right

                      Come on, Gordo. Did you think for an instant that the extra $500 (or any part of it) represented an actual cost or effort incurred by Steiner?

                      They're charging an extra $500 because they believe they'll get it.

                        How do you know theyre not labeling the boxes? I think more than likely theyre labeling the boxes. And maybe they gotta get the seats out by a certian date.

                        • How long fdid it take them to get the seats out of Shea? Think they will be done by this time next week? Two weeks from now?

                          You can also see that in fact ALL of the wall padding has been removed, including the foul territory. Indeed every part of this Stadium won't be sold off to the highest bidder.

                            Curly you bring up an interesting point. But something else to think about; while I was in Yankee Stadium back in November, I managed to pull off a private tour and I was fortunate enough to see the Gherig pillar room.

                            In this room are stacks of boxes, about eight feet high in some places, that are FULL of backup, repaired and recycled seat backs and bottoms. My take on it was that the padded seats weren't put in until long after the renovation. My guess is that all the standard seats were removed and stored for later use.

                            If I had to guess, I would say that those seats were definitely left in the Stadium when the Yankees abandoned it and they will be sold off too. I didn't see any frames, so this might give them an extra few thousand seats to sell as individuals.

                              The padded seats in the old stadium weren't put in until some time in the
                              90's. I think it was either right before the strike or right after the strike, I can't remember. Anyway, I remember sitting behind home plate with my dad a couple times, and the seats weren't padded yet.
