The Mets are finding their Shea Stadium auction to be as fresh as the day’s headlines.
The Mets’ pennant chances flew south in September whilie one of the team’s sponsors had problems of its own.
Among the items being sold in the stadium memorabilia sale are the outfield wall panels. Not something your average sports collector would probably go crazy over, but there are plenty of Mets fans who think one of them would make a nifty addition to the old homestead.
One such panel features the advertising of AIG, the insurance company on the receiving end of the government’s new bailout program.
It’s apparently capturing the interest of some bidders in the Mets’ current auction. But what’s it really worth?
