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
- Platinum - $10,000 minimum purchase deposit
- Gold - $5,000 minimum purchase
- Silver - $2,500 minimum purchase
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.

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.
