Old Yankee Stadium Letters To Be Auctioned Off For $600,000

Evan Wilt Contributor

Former New York Yankees legend Reggie Jackson announced he will sell the signage of the old Yankee Stadium at an auction on April 1, The New York Times reports.

Jackson acquired the 10-foot-high “YANKEE STADIUM” letters after the stadium was retired in 2008 and has since kept them in a storage facility in New Jersey. The stadium was the site of Jackson’s three home runs in the 1977 World Series, which earned him the title “Mr. October.”

According to the Times, Jackson will only sell the letters as a set, which is estimated to fetch between $300,000-$600,000.

The Hall of Famer, now 68, told ESPN that he wants a new generation to own and enjoy this New York City icon.

The 13 letters light up electric blue and are constructed of aluminum casing with Plexiglas inserts, varying from 2 to 10 feet wide.
