As a big Mets fan, I was excited about the offering for Citi Field. HOWEVER, the photo is EXTREMELY outdated. Based on the wall configuration (the home run line still extends up to the top of the Home Run Apple in center), the lack of championship banners on the left field wall, and the fact that the walls are black (not blue) and haven't been "moved in" yet, this photo is very clearly taken during the first half of the 2009 MLB season. Sheesh. I'd rather them go back another 6-8 months and offer a panoramic from Shea Stadium with Citi Field going up in the background than buy such an outdated print of the current digs.

Have to respectfully disagree. I am a Yankees fan, been to many, its hard for me to say it but Fenway is the best place in my opinion.

I agree; love how the PNC Park mural shows the great Pittsburgh skyline and bridge.

Fenway is significantly overrated, been to a bunch of games there & unless you're behind homeplate, a dugout or in the bleachers, you're cranking your neck & back to see the action...as long as there's no obstructions in your line of sight

The Kauffman one isn't too bad. Beautiful stadium in person.

Both Comerica Park and Target Field have gorgeous views of their respective downtowns over the right field fence. And both of their pictures are taken towards left field. Really?

Then I guess you have never been to PNC Park in Pittsburgh! The team has a ways to go before they are competitive but the stadium is absolutely beautiful!

Woot is selling them framed. The Ultramural site is unframed at the lower price. Look above the price selections to see the real price with frame. All the $95 ones here are $150 there.

They also managed to get a Reds player on the scoreboard at the time of the picture

I'd want one with a Reds player in it, yeah. But since they couldn't even be arsed to do a crappy mural of Great American Ball Park ... :-)

Phillystyle wrote:Agreed 100%. I figured they took that angle so they could include the "Jumbotron" :P

No, I'm sure they could get the screen from the other angle too but if they want the screen in there, would you want a Cincinnati Reds player on it?

I'd throw a battery at this one. LOL

Also pretty sad the stadium is half full (with the upper deck in left looking pretty bare), its almost like this was pre-game. IMO a better shot would have been looking into the opposite field, maybe about at third base, that way there would be a good shot of the jumbotron along with Minnie and Paulie, plus the courtyard that is in right field with the Minneapolis skyline behind it. Seeing a bunch of seats doesn't really do it for me.

But in general the pictures are not good. Poor lighting and composition....and in many the iconic parts of particlar stadiums are left out as if the photo assignments were given to folks who were going to their first baseball game.

Very disappointing.



I'm in the same boat as you. This sale had my interest piqued, but upon further investigation between the blurry quality and no mind of what is going on in the photo, it definitely doesn't seem to be worth the price.

The same can be said of Target field. The center field originally opened in 2010 with some trees as pictured here, but after the first season, too many batters were complaining about the movement and it was changed by 2011.

Its just sad because I'm guessing someone got paid to go to each of these stadiums for these photos and from what I can tell, they just snapped a photo without thinking about what was in the shot.

This did give me a great idea to take a proper mural picture the next time I am at Target Field though.

What a terrible shot of Petco Park. The defining feature of the stadium is the Western Metal Building that forms the left field foul line, and it isn't even in the picture.

Pretty amazing how all the terrible teams have these murals available, yet Great American Ballpark is not featured. You have PNC park on here, yet when is the last time anyone cared about the Pittsburgh Pirates? The answer is never. I can't remember the last time they won a division. Probably back when Roberto Clemente played.

Why the heck would ANY photographer take a shot of the inside of Miller Park and exclude Bernie Brewer's slide?!? This is a shame, a travesty. It would be like taking a picture of Busch Stadium from an angle that doesn't include the St Louis Arch. Fail.

I love the St. Louis Cardinals and was considering plunking down $100 for this. However, upon closer inspection, the people on the field are the ground crew, apparently prior to a game. Why do I want to hang a picture of the ground crew? Good idea, terrible execution.

I especially like the one that's titled "Green Monster" but does not show the Green Monster.

2) Turner Field is never that full, at least not since they held the Olympics there 17 years ago. So they used the Clone Tool to fill in all the empties, but they couldn't knock out the foul pole? Hrmph.



Attendance is always up and down at The Ted. On weekdays, it's typically in the 19k-21k range and could be anywhere in the 30k-38k range on the weekends, depending on the opponent and other happenings around town. Obviously certain dates or series bring spikes and the occasional sellout, but those are hard to pull off with a capacity of just under 50k.

They don't sell out a lot of regular-season games, but good luck getting seats for the home opener, the Fourth of July, any time the Cubs are in town, and the post-season (a couple dozen games since the Olympics).



You can thank the other Cubs fans for not being able to find tickets. That's one team that always infiltrates and fills our stadium.

48x18, not 16 and it's like $15 less. Doesn't seem like this is that good of a deal?

Tell that to the Stow family. Even without that, the traffic down there is horrendous, with most seats still empty by the third inning, and them starting to empty out again by the seventh.

I'm new to the game (wife is a diehard Giants fan who lured me in) and have to say there's at least a half dozen ahead of Chavez Ravine in the pecking order. Fenway, Camden, Yankee Stadium, Great American, Busch Stadium, and of course AT&T with the freakiest fans in the league.

I actually enjoy the Turner Field shot, the foul pole is part of the field and shouldn't be airbrushed out. There are better shots that could have been taken though. I bought one regardless.

That being said, it has been over a week now and I am still 'awaiting shipping'. That's more infuriating than a foul pole.
