Joe Ruocco has plenty of items in his store that are for sale–and one big one that isn’t.
Once the season is over, Yankee Stadium will be dismantled into thousands of pieces of very marketable memorabilia.
That wasn’t the case the last time the Stadium was renovated. Items from the original park wound up in all sorts of different places, including a sports card shop in Wichita, Kansas.
The owner of the shop is a lifelong Yankee fan–and Bronx native who still lives and dies with the Yankees. He’s a collector too–and even has some things he’d sell for the right price… just not the one big item you can’t miss.
