— Days Without Shea —

by Kingman on October 30 at 4:29PM
Shea Stadium may be gone but Shea memorabilia lives on.

The MeiGray Group just announced some exciting new opportunities...just in time for the holidays, they say.

Like what, you say?

Like this. A 5x7 official dirt plaque. "This handsome 5x7 Cherry Wood Authenticated Dirt Plaque commemorates Shea Stadium's final season. The generous rectangular capsule of Authenticated Dirt was lifted from Shea Stadium's infield following the final game in Shea Stadium's illustrious 44-year history."

There are three other collectible thingies too: two dirt-related and one foul pole related.

is this the dirt that we all booed the Marlins players for collecting after the game? I'm kind of curious why it took over a year after the last game to get these things on the market.

I like the $69.99 dirt crystal. Not exactly dirt cheap!

The dirt plaque is a waste of money. A thin piece of dirt is placed on a paper then put in the plastic holder. It is such a rip off. I have the plaque yankee stadium and it has a nice amount of actual dirt that moves in thew plastic holder when you turn the plaque upside down. As a die hard Mets fan I was extremely disappointed and felt robbed.
