The MeiGray Group held the live auction for Shea Stadium's surviving memorabilia.
I didn't go and apparently only about 100 folks did. The NY Times wrote a somewhat haughty review
in yesterday's paper.
The only notable thing about that piece is that they quoted DyHrdMet, who wrote a much more thorough and useful series of posts for Remembering Shea.
Among the highlights of DyHrdMet's review: Tom Seaver's locker only went for $2,600. Also, there seemed to be some mechanical and personal issues between the auctioneer and, well just about everybody else. Sounds like he was a Yankee fan.
The big question being asked online and elsewhere: what happens to the rest of the Shea stuff? And if the Mets are going to suddenly make Citi Field more Met-esque by putting actual Met historical artifacts there, then what's left? All the good stuff - from our championship banners to Kaz Matsui photos - are gone, you knuckleheads.
Maybe the Mets will have to start their Citi Field Mets Museum by buying some of this leftover Shea stuff still on sale today.
