Original Ebbets Field Seat (Refurbished)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080

Refurbished stadium seat from Ebbets Field, longtime home to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Ebbets Field, which was built in 1913, was home to the Brooklyn Dodgers for forty-five seasons and played host to nine World Series and one All-Star Game. The final Dodgers game at Ebbets Field took place on September 24, 1957. As the game ended, longtime organist Gladys Gooding serenaded the sparse crowd of 6,702 fans with the strains of Auld Lang Syne. Three years later the stadium was unceremoniously demolished, an event that still brings tears to the eyes of those who bore witness to that final act of supreme sacrilege. The freestanding unit features its original metal framework, and the wood comprising the seat is original; however, the wooden slats on the backrest are replacements that were taken from an original Crosley Field seat. It appears that all of the nuts and bolts are modern replacements. Freshly painted in "Dodgers Blue." The numeral "4" is stenciled in white along the top slat of the back rest. 21.5 (W) x 15 (L; seat opened) x 33 (H) inches. 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 $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,080
