In today’s New York Times’ Style section, Allen Salkin examines the Mets’ growing popularity, selling scads of “Mrs. Wright” merchandise, SportsNet NY’s rating bonanaza, etc., and comes away with the following quote from a Yankees representative.
For the Yankees™ part, Lonn A. Trost, the team™s chief operating officer, sought to avoid portraying the New York baseball scene as a competition. œI am focused on the Yankees, he said. œI am not looking to measure if Derek Jeter™s T-shirt outsells Marv Throneberry™s.
Where does one find a Marv Throneberry tee?
