Shea Stadium is gone, but pieces remain in a warehouse, waiting for buyers.
The Mets have bid goodbye to Shea Stadium and set up shop in shiny new CitiField. The old ballpark is now bits and pieces, much of it sold late last year as soon as the club bid farewell to the 2008 season. There was way too much to sell in one fell swoop, though.
MeiGray Group, which was given the chance to sell off what it could, has sold about 75% of what it originally had available. But when you’ve removed 41 truckloads of virtually anything having to do with the Stadium, you’ve always got leftovers…and some of it is actually pretty good stuff.
The only problem with some of it is shipping it. Many pieces, including the foul poles, clubhouse door and program vendor’s stands are a little hard to ship.
The remaining Shea Stadium artifacts are sitting in a warehouse, awaiting buyers. Paul Lukas got a tour from MeiGray’s Barry Meisel:
