Do You Own Your Piece Of Yankee Stadium? You don’t? Did you even know you can own a piece of the action? If you are a Yankees fan, you might already know you can buy a pair of seats from Yankees stadium for $1599 or you might just want to buy the back of a seat for $275. Some of today’s popular stadium souvenirs have become part of the sports memorabilia trade that includes architectural parts of old stadiums and the Yankee Stadium still features many parts of the stadium that are for sale on the Internet or on auction websites, like eBay.
You can purchase authentic Yankee Stadium “freeze-dried grass” sod for a nickel under a hundred dollars. It is a little desktop display that could be used for a paperweight, but it is a plug of the turf in a preserved state, inside a cube that sits on a pedestal. When you are searching for stadium souvenirs, sod seems to be a popular item, but so does an authentic brick from Yankee Stadium Ceremonial Monument Park that is displayed in a handsome display case, marked with an attractive plague that states it is a “Yankee Stadium Artifact”. You will get a Yankees-Steiner Letter of Authenticity for the price of $180, but there is a limited supply of any of these types of stadium souvenirs.
Keep in mind you need a Letter of Authenticity from the Yankees organization, for it to be considered true and authentic, however. There were likely some people that got away with a few pieces of the stadium, before the security got tighter, but if you are collecting stadium souvenirs, you will want the authentic stadium souvenirs that are offered. This is especially true if you are mounting an effort to start a collection that will be worth something, someday. It might take a little bit of time to see much appreciation, but there will always be an interest in certain stadium souvenirs.
Of course, any sports memorabilia and stadium souvenirs should have COAs, like we always say, and it is almost mandatory on any collectible sports souvenirs, even the balls you catch at the ballpark. Parts of stadiums that are closing might appeal to you, but there are all kinds of things you can collect, when it comes to vintage sports souvenirs. It’s not too late to own a piece of Yankee Stadium because I just saw all of these things on the Internet the other day!
