Any chance Butera is being sold off? My apartment building needs another doorman

Just be careful not to buy any uniforms worn when they played the Yankees.

It was pretty neat. Season ticket holders had early access (10-noon). We got their early and were able to check out the construction in right field (they are replacing the bleachers with an area that will be similar to the Roof Deck).
The sale took place in the visiting clubhouse and there was a lot of stuff. Game-used balls, bats, decorative stuff from around the stadium. There was a bunch of jerseys (I saw an Arcia #80 - I think it was - go off the rack). Lots of Danny Valencia jerseys. When I walked out of there around 10:30 there were probably 75 people in the clubhouse, 30 in line to check out and between 150-200 people (maybe more) in line.
On another note, I dropped my father-in-law off at the airport on the way there and was right behind Bill Smith being dropped off by his daughter (it took me a second to notice him, she wasn't bad looking...). I told my father-in-law to remind him that there aren't many pitchers on the roster.

You didn't mention whether you bought anything? I had to work today, but was trying to talk my son into going and purchasing me a christmas gift. I'm pretty sure he never left the house. Did they have pretty much the same stuff that was displayed at the Kiosk in Center field the last couple weeks of the season? I've never been a autograph collector and I have never purchased any memorabilia. I don't think purchasing stuff from a 90+ loss team is the place to start.

I bought a jacket that was originally $100 (for $50) and a shirt for my wife. I do collect stuff, mostly SGAs and autographs. The game-used stuff was more than I cared to spend. For example, a ball that Esmerling Vasquez pitched in the dirt to A-Roid was selling for $30. I don't know if you made it to the "Metrodome Garage Sale", but this was similar to that... only with a lot less stuff.
One item that I picked up twice but didn't buy: A framed Baseball America with coverboy/top prospect Todd Walker.
