Yanks to announce Stadium memorabilia sale tomorrow

Damon named AL Player of the Week
Open Thread: Updating the 2009 Pledge Drive

Yesterday afternoon, I caught a glimpse of a news item in Darren Rovell’s Twitter stream for which many Yankee fans have been waiting. The team and Steiner Sports will announce details of the Yankee Stadium memorabilia offerings tomorrow afternoon. Tomorrow’s announcement follows today’s news that the Yankees have purchased the rights to sell Stadium memorabilia from New York City for $11.5 million. While no details have been announced, PeteAbe says seats will sell for $1500 a pair. That’s a far cry from the amount my grandmother paid for the seat my dad owns from Yankee Stadium I.

    I might seriously consider a pair of seats, tho I would have to forgo my next vacation to do it.

      My uncle has a set of four from when they did the remodel back in the ’70s. I don’t even know if they were auctioned off back then, or if people just came by and took them because they were going to get junked otherwise.

        They sold em for like $60, but I remember reading that they had so many left over they threw them in the dumpsters and the construction guys sold them.
