Vintage Yankee Stadium Seats for Sale

Posted on June 5th, 2011 by admin | Posted in Featured, Misc Vintage Baseball

Take a look at these seats that were removed and sold by United Housewrecking in the 1970’s during the renovation of Yankee Stadium. Although they didn’t include any certification the seller left them unpainted so you can see the layers of paint used by the Yankees throughout the years.

They are in the same condition as they were the last time a fan sat in them. The seats have brackets so they sit as if in the Stadium. Don’t get these mixed up with the newer seats being sold as “Old Yankee Stadium Seats”. I’m sure people sat in these seats to watch Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, and Joe Dimaggio. It’s also possible they watched Lou Gehrig and maybe even Babe Ruth. Of course they were there for people like Ted Williams and Willie Mays (World Series) too.

They are available on eBay with a starting bid of just $1,490.
