The Yankees and Mets are reportedly in negotiations with the city to buy their old stadiums before they are demolished, so they can sell all the seats, bricks and other scraps to fans. Shea Stadium’s 55,000 orange seats could sell for up to $500 each. Bricks from Yankee Stadium could bring in $100 to $300 each. Those prices could appreciate over time: a brick from Ebbets Field, the Brooklyn Dodgers’ stadium demolished in 1960, sells for $1,000 and a seat can go for as much as $5,000.
