NOTES:
 
    These Crouse-Hinds type R, single face traffic signal lights were repurposed and turned into Yankee Stadium souvenirs by changing the lens and rewired for use in the home or office. They were then sold in the surrounding area of Yankee stadium during the late 1970's to the 1980's. There are a large variety of lenses used for these souvenir display lights that includes;  New York Yankees, Yankee Stadium, Yankee Tickets, Tickets-Park, "A One of a Kind" Mickey Mantle Memorial Park (a Park that doesn't exist), To Bleachers, to Upper Deck, and there are also NY Giants, Mets and Jets that were sold in the Shea Stadium area.

These Traffic lights were never used to direct Yankee Stadium Traffic or point fans to the Ticket Window, upper deck or Bleachers. They are just fantasy "Man Cave" display pieces.

Crouse-Hinds was one of the original traffic signal pioneers. Their distinctive art deco signals that appeared from the 30s until 1959 were legendary and quite sought after by collectors. The Traffic signals used to make the Yankee Stadium souvenirs are from about the 1960's-1970s. Some newer signal lights were used and repurposed to be sold in the 1990s and later.

The signal light pictured measures about 13" x 13" x 8" and weighs approximately 11.2 lbs. They generally sell in the $50.-$150. price range, as fantasy pieces for display. However there are an alarming number of these traffic signals that have sold and are currently being sold in the $1,000.+ price range with asking prices as high as $5,000. They are being sold as original, and authentic, as being used at Yankee Stadium. This is just not true. They were never use for anything other than conventional signal lights with NO YANKEE STADIUM LENS. Buyer beware!

  Here are some False descriptions from ebay auctions.

- "An ORIGINAL New York City traffic street light sign from Yankee Stadium that served traffic and pedestrians in the Bronx, NY heading to the "House that Ruth Built". This was obtained from our consignor directly from a retired employee of the New York State Department of Transportation and were hung in the neighborhoods of the Yankee Stadium
exit just off the Major Deegan Expressway."

- "This is a great looking and all original, authentic hanging light fixture directional sign that came from the old Yankee Stadium"

- "NEW YORK YANKEES TRAFFIC LIGHTS WERE TAKEN FROM THE OLD YANKEE STADIUM AFTER BEING DISPLAYED THERE FOR YEARS EXTREMELY RARE"

- "WOW--own a piece of History---this was removed by a worker when the place was taken down. It was placed out side directing people to the stadium etc"

- "This is a original street light from old Yankees stadium that was torn
down in 1973 and is extremely rare"


 These lights are large and do Make a great display piece for $100-$200., with patience you could find them for less but they are NOT authentic and not worth the big money that they are selling for in misleading auctions.
