The final pieces of the former home of the New York Mets went on the auction block over the weekend.
Everything was up for sale last fall, but not everything sold when Shea Stadium shut its doors for the last time.
The 44 year-old home of the New York Mets was turned over to MeiGray Group which began selling off anything and everything to fans and collectors.
On Saturday, the last 20% of what was left went into a public auction at the company’s warehouse. Photos that hung on the stadium’s walls, seats, seat section signs, lockers, turnstiles, program stands and flags that flew above the stadium went on the block. Some items sold for less than $10. A piece of the outfield wall found a new home for quite a bit more.
Over 2,000 items in 700+ lots went on the block as MeiGray and the Mets tried to liquidate the remaining stock. Mets fans turned out to grab one final piece of team history according to a story in the New York Times.
