Nothing says “I love you Dad,” like stinky lockers and used carpeting:
With only seven days remaining until Father’s Day, Yankees-Steiner Collectibles, the exclusive provider of game-used memorabilia from the original and current Yankee Stadium, introduced a second lot of unique and iconic pieces of baseball history in the “Yankee Stadium Legends” online auction. People can now find once-in-a-lifetime gifts, perfect for sports-enthusiast Dads. The newest additions to the auction include:
Official lockers of current Yankees superstars, including Alex Rodriguez, Andy Pettitte and Hideki Matsui;
World Championship carpeting removed from the front offices at the original ballpark. Every unique piece of carpet displays a different year of each of the franchise’s 26 World Championships.
Cast off the lockers! Follow the carpet! No! Let us gather lockers together!
Also available are 1′x1′ pieces of live sod ($120) and “Final Season Crystals with Genuine Dirt from the original Yankee Stadium” ($80). I hope they come with certificates of authenticity, because I’d hate it if someone tried to sell me fake dirt from the Bronx.
A little memorabilia never hurt anyone, but I simply don’t get this level of fetishism.
