The most expensive item at Yankee Stadium (that is not a suite)



When you go to a game at Yankee Stadium, you don't have to leave empty-handed. The Yankees team store is huge and filled with anything you can imagine.

Hello Kitty as a Yankees fan. Check.


Masahiro Tanaka collectibles. Check.



Miniature Yankee corvettes. Check.



Amazingly overpriced cards that aren't worth the plastic they are in. Double check.



I saw pajamas, nightgowns and panties just in case women wanted to get a little cozy in their Yankees gear.

So, yeah, you can get anything - even on any budget. If you're looking for something a little pricier that has a better story, Steiner Sports has a shop at the stadium. It's not terribly big, but it does have the most expensive items in the stadium.

That Amex card could really come in handy in a place like this. Fans can find autographs, stadium dirt, game-used memorabilia in the Steiner Store. But there was one item that caught my eye -- a Thurman Munson signed baseball.




You don't see too many of his autographs around because he died in 1979 at 32 years old.

However, I wasn't walking out of the shop with that autograph ball. Did you see the price tag?

$10,000.

  1. Not only the price tag, but the fact that most of the auto has faded away. That's too bad.

  2. Haven't had the chance to visit the New Yankee Stadium yet. Used to go to Old Yankee and Shea quite a bit as a kid growing up. I was at Citi field the year it opened and was listening to people comment how beer was like 12 bucks for a Bud product at New yankee. Too bad that auto has faded. Steiner is high on their prices too.
