Parts of the old Yankee Stadium are being sold and will continue to be sold for about another year and a half. According to Forbes.com, Steiner Sports, which is handling the sale, will spend millions to remove the parts from the stadium undamaged. The first $11.5 million in sales goes to New York City. Most of the stadium's important items will be sold via competitive bidding, but you can still buy some grass from the field--freeze-dried in a display case--for a set price of $100. The turnstile pictured here sold for $6,785.
