Mike Piazza Sept. 11 Jersey is Coming Home Where it Belongs


Thankfully, the story surrounding Mike Piazza’s post-9/11 jersey has a happy ending.

According to the New York Post, three Mets fans have combined their efforts to purchase the jersey for $355,000, and it will spend time at Citi Field and eventually the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, which is its rightful resting place.

From the story:

The Mets made no attempt to buy back the jersey, after selling it for a small profit three years ago and then having that owner lend it to their museum at Citi Field. But that owner took the jersey back, and the Mets — having parted with it for a few pieces of gold — were left without a significant baseball relic, one of the most important pieces of their history.
