— Days Without Shea —

So I posted earlier about  the new Shea sale going on.

The details were just forwarded to me and there's lots of great stuff available...for a price.

To buy stuff, you have to join the "Shea Premiere Club." How? By effectively making a down payment on the stuff.

There are three levels of Club status – Platinum, Gold and Silver.
  • Platinum - $10,000 minimum purchase deposit (MPD)
  • Gold - $5,000 minimum purchase deposit (MPD)
  • Silver - $2,500 minimum purchase deposit (MPD) 
According to the press release:
This is NOT A FEE, but a non-refundable deposit towards your intended purchases.  No matter which level you choose, 100% of your money goes towards what you buy. If you want to spend more than your MPD, you can pay the balance after your Tour. Platinum members will tour the stadium first, followed by Gold and then Silver members. Tours will be conducted while the Mets are on the road in September. Club members will be given a specific date and time for the Shea Memorabilia Tour, in order of minimum purchase deposit. The higher the minimum purchase deposit, the earlier your opportunity to reserve the items you want. And Club Members who choose the same MPD will get their Club Number on a first-come, first-served basis. So the sooner you sign up, the earlier you will get to tour Shea Stadium to make your selections.

What is for sale? Here is a link to the full price list.

There is so much classic stuff here. View the list. Among the highlights:

Mets Dugout = $100,000

So let me get this straight - only people willing to shell down at least $2500 are able to buy any of the memorabilia? This bums me out as I wanted to get my boyfriend something for his birthday.

no. the people who pay $2500 get first shot at the stuff.. after the final home game, anything not purchased by the people who paid $2500 will go on sale to the public.... so paying the 2500 just gives you 1st shot.

They're selling the championship flags?? That can't be true! If it is, they've lost their minds.

They're selling the retired numbers???? Did anyone phone up Joan Hodges and ask if she wanted this giant fourteen?

Framed copies of yearbooks? They won't be putting these up anywhere at the new house?

Someone better fess up and tell me this is a joke.

BTW, is Loge 13 going to pony up the grand for the "Loge 11/13" sign?

Before I open the check book to buy the Loge11/13 sign, I plan on personally checking the merchandise and how securely it is fastened to the wall...

So I guess only rich fans can have a bit of the stadium where we've spent years of our lives, lots of our money, and had our hearts crushed and broken over and over.

They should be paying us!

If you were serious about the urinals, the answer is no. The NYC Parks dept. is taking the fixtures including the toilets to use as replacement parts in other buildings.

I don't think they're selling the actual pennant -- I think they're selling the "flags" from the right-field wall. They don't give you pennants for wild cards or division titles.

My grandson went to his first game with his father (my son) on the last game played at Shea Stadium. He hung the tickets on his wall along with his other Mets memorabilia. The tickets have his seat # on it and I wanted to surprise him and purchase the two seats they sat in on his first father and son baseball game. Does anyone know how I can purchase exact deat #'s.

Hi Bill,

Unfortunately, you cannot buy the exact seats unless you were a full season ticket holder and made the purchase during the exclusive sale back in August. I know folks have tried to request exact seat numbers and were also denied.
