Anthony Scaramucci, Tony Lauto, Jim McCann of 1-800-Flowers and an anonymous female business partner agreed to pay $365,000 for the jersey worn by Mike Piazza on the night of September 21st, 2001. It is one of, if not the greatest home run ever to be hit in the city of New York, and one of the greatest moment in sports history.
When asked about why he wanted to take the jersey off the market and keep it in New York, Scaramucci had the following to say:
The jersey represent getting knocked down, stepping into the batter’s box and hitting home runs again, which all of us have to do no matter what unspeakable acts happen in our lives. It’s a great representation of what the Mets are about.
