— Days Without Shea —

The Shea Stadium memorabilia auction continues. View the latest items here.

Alot of this stuff is interesting only to aficionados of the finer points of Shea (like the sophisticates who frequent this blog).  I had no idea a Nathan's hot dog bin cost over $200 or I would have gotten a job at Shea last season and swiped a few. Meanwhile, the Mr. Met no smoking sign is now worth at least $590 in the current auction. I bought one for $100 last year. I am an investing genius.

I think the flags are the coolest thing of interest to non-Shea fans. The old football team flags are now on the block. Some examples here:

Only $160 for the Chargers flag, less for the Bengals. Makes a nice gift for true fans of those teams. It's not like any of them will be getting a CHAMPIONSHIP flag anytime soon anyway...

I'm still trying to figure out why those flags were kept around for 25 years after the Jets left.

Hey Kingman, did you ever get your "Loge 13" sign? My wife is STILL mad at me for getting My Loge 10 but it goes great with the seats. After 22 years walking under it....it was a MUST HAVE!!!!

Kingman...it looks like the Loge 13 signs are available on the MeiGrey web site.
