Cameo: You Break It, You Buy It

ShareThis

Even George Steinbrenner, busking for a new ballpark, couldn’t have staged this. The burning question: What’s going to happen to that chunk of Yankee Stadium that crashed into a loge seat last week? “I got phone calls today from two collectors,” said Peter Siegel of Gotta Have It! Collectibles. “You can take that large brick and break it up and get maybe $150 a piece. And Yankee Stadium seats alone go for about $500. That’s a special one, so it’d be worth more.” Ron Schwartz of Future Sports and Memorabilia had another strategy: “Somebody would pay a couple of thousand dollars. The big thing would be to get George to sign it. Then you’d have a multi-thousand-dollar piece.” Maybe that’s been the Boss’s idea all along: The House that Ruth Built might be worth more as the House That Steinbrenner Sold Off for Parts.
