Freestanding Original Yankee Stadium Seat
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,740.00
Offered is a desirable piece of baseball history in the form of an original single seat from Yankee Stadium. This seat, bearing the stenciled seat number "17," was one of many saved from the wrecking ball during the stadium's renovation in 1973. The freestanding unit is all original and bears a commemorative plate on the backrest that reads "Yankee Stadium-'The House That Ruth Built'-50th Anniversary 1923-1973-Bronx, N. Y." During its decades of service, this chair has witnessed dozens of World Series games, and the finest moments of the careers of Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, and Maris, as well as all of the other great players which have made the Yankees the greatest dynasty in the history of the game. The seat displays normal wear commensurate with its age and former use including chipping to the blue paint (revealing traces of the original green paint underneath) and oxidation to the exposed metal framework. Unfolded, the seat measures 24 (W) x 17 (L) x 31 (H). Due to the weight and size of this piece, the shipping charges (depending on exactly where it is sent and method of shipping) may be substantial. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,740.00
