Rare three-seat bleacher section from the original Yankee Stadium (1923-1973). While there are numerous original Yankee Stadium seats in the hobby today, bleacher sections are far scarcer. This is the first we have ever offered and we cannot recall having seen more than a few others over the years. The offered section, which measures 50 x 10 x 12 inches, displays the black-painted seat numbers "10," "11," and "12." Composed of fiberglass mounted upon metal supports, this piece most likely dates to the stadium's later years (we are not sure when the fiberglass bleacher seats were installed, but fiberglass was not commonly used until after World War II). The seat displays normal wear commensurate with its age and former use including surface marks and oxidation to the metal supports. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
