Reggie Jackson Selling Big Letters from Yankees Stadium

I know plenty of people that love to collect sports memorabilia, specifically Yankees memorabilia, and if you are one of those people then this post is for you. Reggie Jackson, the man who got his number retired from the Yankees after basically three at bats in a World Series, is selling off the big letters that he owns from the old Yankee Stadium.

The letters are 10 foot high and spell out “Yankee Stadium” and used to sit atop the original Bronx Ballpark. The estimated sale price for these is $300,000 to $600,000 according to Sotheby’s where they are being auctioned off at on April 1, 2015.

Jackson purchased the letters from the Yankees after the last game at the old Yankee Stadium in 2008 and now wants “a new generation to own and enjoy this icon of the Yankees and of New York City.” Or he just wants money if we’re all being honest here.
