Shea Bleacher Bench

I have all the Bleachers that were removed from Shea.
What a Great piece for that office or Man Cave.
I have been selling smaller single seat benches (approx 21”) But this is the first double that I’ve made and it comes with 2 numbers and MLB Holograms.
The Mets tried selling a Bleacher Bench after Shea's Demise. They weren't well thought out and sold for about 275. shipped. You can even find some listed on Ebay from time to time now. They used black angle iron legs, and if you purchased, it came with a disclaimer that they were not to be used as a seat due to the instability of the legs.  A Bench, that shouldn't be used as a Seat ??? 
Well I worked with a National Bleacher company to come up with a leg option that is stabe and can hold hundreds and hundreds of pounds….and with this leg option it looks just like they did in Shea.
This Bench measures just over 36” across and is about 17 ½ inches high.
You can verify this items authenticity by going to MLB Authentication Site and entering the unique serial numbers on the MLB Holograms. I am also including a laminated Mets Letter, which adds a nice touch.

Some very simple assembly is required and you can check that out at

2000 World Series Press Pin

You are bidding on a New York Mets 2000 World Series Press Media Pin. Made by Balfour. These pins were issued to the media who covered the World Series. The Mets played the Yankees that year in the Bronx and Shea Stadium. This would be the 4th World Series that the Mets would be in.

This item is now 15 years old! HARD TO FIND. Not that many were made.

I am not a grader but this one looks nice! Look at the photos. Great item! Even comes with the back of the original case when given to the news reporter.

This item would be great for any New York Mets, Yankees, World Series or Shea Stadium collector!

Waiting for an At Bat to Finish

You guys who follow me on Twitter know that I post this at least once a game. People coming down to the seats while an at bat is going on, making the people seated in the row get up and possibly miss what's going on in the field. My favorite is when they stop in front of you when the play is happening. It takes all my resolve not to yell at these folks. (I'm getting kinder in my old age). There is no consideration anymore for your fellow fans and it's all about "me", just like in society.

One of the Mets fan experience heads reached out to me via DM. He and I have talked in the past about this and he told me he was going to have a talk during roll call with the staff formerly called ushers about the policies of letting people down during an at bat vs. in between at bats. He also told me they have a policy that up until the third inning the "ushers" don't stop anyone during an at bat because of a push back from folks complaining that they can't get to their seats when they arrive late. My response to that was- "So all the people who get to the game on time and are in their seats are the ones penalized because of the late comers?" How is that right? You are late you wait. Simple as that.

I also have never ever seen one "usher" stop one person during an at bat trying to walk down to their seats after the third ever.

Now I have a good relationship with the person who DM'd me and he wants me to sit down with them on the next weekend home stand so we can discuss what I have seen in other ballparks and how they handle some of the issues that I raised on Twitter.

I also raised that the Mets need signage for the early entry for 1/2 season and full season ticket holders. There were almost fist fights over people trying to get in on Saturday for the gnomes.

Hopefully I do have that meeting with them and stuff can work out better for a better experience at the ball park.

Thanks to the Mets for reaching out to me about these issues.
