A new bidder has emerged for the very-much-for-sale New York Mets.
Kurt Rappaport, a 49-year-old Los Angeles realtor turned real estate developer, is leading a group that hopes to purchase the money-losing Amazin’s.
Sources close to Rappaport confirmed to The Post that his group is in direct contact with the Mets’ bankers, Allen & Co. Multiple people familiar with the bid say that Rappaport, who won the Dave Winfield humanitarian award at a Major League Baseball event in 2018, is a baseball fan with heavy-hitter connections and could table a sizable bid.
Rappaport made his fortune as Hollywood’s realtor to the stars, cutting deals for Malibu and Beverly Hills mansions on behalf of celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres and Ryan Seacrest. In 2008, Rappaport sold his own Beverly Hills pad to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes for $32.5 million. His net worth is thought to be in the neighborhood of $350 million.
The Rappaport bid brings the total of active bidders confirmed by The Post to four, alongside private equity billionaires Josh Harris and David Blitzer, celebrity power couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez and British billionaire brothers Simon and David Reuben.

The A's announced that fans can pay to have their cutouts at home games this season, with prices ranging from $49 to $129. The most expensive gets you a baseball if a foul ball hits your cutout. Proceeds go to local charities.— Alden Gonzalez (@Alden_Gonzalez) June 30, 2020
How do foul balls get hit at the cut outs with the protective netting? What if my cutout got damaged?
Does the team replace it for free? Is this a cutout personal seat license? DO you get the cut out at the
of season? Is it considered a game used item?

Yesterday I received a text from my buddy Roger Clark from NY1 News asking me if I wanted to
come down by Citi Field to be interviewed. I got nothing going on right now, so I thought why the hell
not. Roger is a GREAT guy and I love being able to spend some time with him to chat. That was the
good part of my day. Bad part of it was I needed an emergency root canal.
