Sales began at 6:00 a.m. this morning for Tiger Stadium memorabilia, and by 9:00 a.m. the web site was already down. Nice. Even when the city of Detroit contracts with other people stuff gets screwed up.
Still, you can get Tiger Stadium seats which are available on a first come first serve basis. For $279 including shipping you get a pair of regular seats or you can get Tiger Den seats for $399 a pair. The pairs of seats come as-is (dirty, dusty, rusty), but functional. I’m still really tempted and it comes down to the degree of irritation I want to inflict on Mrs. Billfer.
Other stuff that I saw up for auction before the site crashed included a bunch of signage, some benches from the dugout, some doors, and the urinal from the Home lockerroom. Bidding on the urinal opened at $100.
UPDATE: The site is back up, and as a public service here is the direct link to the home dugout urinal. Picture self peeing alongside Hank Greenberg, Al Kaline, Denny McClain and many other greats.
