The Shea Stadium apple won't be rotting on some big-buck bidder's lawn. It's heading to Citi Field, The Post has learned.
Even as the Mets put a price tag on everything from napkin holders to lockers and even dugouts in the soon-to-be-demolished ballpark, the firm handling those sales says the iconic fiberglass fruit will live on.
"The old apple will have a home at the new stadium," MeiGray Vintage Director Stu Oxenhorn said - though a new apple will also be installed there.
Also deemed too sacred to sell is the city skyline beyond the outfield wall.
