The most expensive dirt comes from the original Yankee Stadium and is sold by Beam Clay, who has been providing dirt for the “House that Ruth Built” since 1952. The dirt was used during the last game that the Yankees played in Yankee Stadium on September 21, 2008, when they beat the Baltimore Orioles 7-3. After the dirt was collected it was then pressed into coins under the supervision of Steiner Sports Marketing to ensure that all dirt was authentic. The coins were placed into frames, along with a picture of old Yankee Stadium, and are currently being sold for $89.99. If that’s too pricey for you, Beam Clay is also selling dirt that was never used at Yankee Stadium for $75.00.
