My wish list

I've got a great spot in my house that is begging for a Babe Ruth monument. Or a few chairs from the Stadium to watch the game from. I wouldn't mind a piece of the façade, either, for those of you pondering a gift for me.

    1. The Babe Ruth Monument. Price Range: $250,000 - $2,000,000
    2. The bronzed Lou Gehrig bat atop the flag pole in center field. (Legend has it that Gehrig's wife gave it to the stadium after he passed) Price Range: $150,00 - $300,000
    3. The "I'd like to thank the good lord for making me a Yankee" Joe DiMaggio sign in the clubhouse. Price Range: $5,000 - $25,000
    4. Home plate. Price Range: $10,000 - $20,000
    5. The "Lead, Follow, or get out of the way!" sign that sits up on Steinbrenner's desk. Price Range: $3,000 - $20,000
    6. The Eddie Layton Hammond organ. Price Range: $5,000 - $15,000
    7. The scale used in the locker room to weigh Yankees as far back as the 50's. Price Range: $2,000 - $10,000
    8. A stadium seat. Price Range: $300 - $2,500
    9. A piece of that famous white façade. Price Range: $100 - $ 2,000
    10. Dirt from the field. Price Range: $200 - $500

Maybe someone else knows this for sure, but I remember an episode of "Yankees On Deck" where they took a tour of Jorge Posada's house...and in his trophy room, the home plate from David Wells' perfecto (I think) was in a glass case. So, the home plate currently in the Stadium is not the 'original' from 1975.

Not that it diminishes the value all that much, I'm's just not the plate from the 70's World Series.

They sell the homeplate after every homestand. You can buy it at
