Here's my entry...so many great old seats!!!!Thanks for sharing everyone

My Dad worked on the original construction of Dodger Stadium and we had 24 seats at one time. They were left overs and all the workers took what they could carry. 8 in our old backyard stayed with the sale of the house in 1990. 16 were rescued from the crawl space of "Grandmas" house when sold in 2010. These were put together shortly after with the same seat and row numbers we used to have in the 60's and 70's growing up at the Stadium.

My friend who put these together for me did 2 for himself in blue and a 4 pack for another friend. A set of 4 remain untouched.

Seats
 
I love seats, but only have some local ones from the Minneapolis area. I need a couple of stands for seats from Metropolitan stadium (Millers, Twins, Vikings). If someone has a good source for a reasonable price, please PM me. Thanks, Jason

Wakefield Nebraska is a small town of about 1,500 in the northeast part of the state. They buy seats from old stadiums and use them as part of their seating. You pay extra to sit in one of the "stadium" seats. They have seats from Wrigley (1998), Fulton County Stadium, Anaheim Stadium, Rosenblatt, Milwaukee County stadium and others. It is a beautiful small park with flower gardens, hanging flowers, a well manicured field and boisterous fans when their legion team is playing.

Finally able to post these photos of 6 Crosley Field seats with two figural ends that we found at an antique store in Ft. Myers about 10 years ago. They still had a vintage moving company's wire tag attached to them with reference to the previous owner's home in Cincinnati. For some reason, somebody sandblasted nearly all of the original orange paint off of them, except in some of the cracks. I would never consider repainting old stadium seats, but in this case we were forced to because there was only bare wood and iron. These photos were taken before we did anything and the seats were separated into a section of 4 and a section of 2. I don't have a finished photo, but we mounted the whole section on a single base and they're now 'functional furniture'. We also have a 3 seat wooden section from Wrigley and wooden Tiger Stadium sections of 3, 3, and 4 that are all functional. The 4 seat row of Tiger Stadium seats sits in the lobby of our business for customers to enjoy.

Love all the stadium seats. Often thought of trying to pick one up but was always daunted by the prospect of paying to get it shipped to Hawaii or, more recently, British Columbia.

Outstanding seats everyone. I'll be adding either a Yankee Stadium seat or Forbes Field seat to my room someday. I hope they end up looking as good as all of yours.

Found the table at an antique resale shop and the lamp at a garage sale. Haven't been able to find out anything about either one. The lamp was in the back of the garage and wasn't for sale. I asked the elderly lady if it was for sale and she said she didn't know if it worked I asked if she would sell it and she gave me a price:D

A very similar figural Batter was on ebay up until recently....

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1930s-BASEBA...#ht_437wt_1161

I don't believe it sold, in case you're inclined to contact Seller. I would imagine he/she would come down on price.

Hope this is helpful :)

These are great. Mine is from Seals Stadium (as is the cushion), by way of the Tacoma Rainiers. They sold these a few years ago for the bargain price of $75 ea. A buddy made the stands and I had two extra. They work great and I put the pair on ebay for $20. Some other guy who sells seat stands sent me a nasty email telling me mine were junk, cheap, etc, etc. Jeez dude, who asked you? :eek:

I recently checked into Candlestick seats...the greedy 49er's are selling them for $700 a pair. Ridiculous.

Yankees seat parts
 
Just thought I would throw this out there. I am finished with my project and have 2 yankee stadium seat parts left. The left side is all intact no broken legs. The center section has a broken leg but the seat side holders are still good. Very hard to find these parts. I do believe that some can be interchanged with other seats. Brock L inspired me to put these on and also Brock is looking for a older yankees slat back cast iron side. If anyone knows of someone who has one please contact myself or Brock L. These parts are for the larger curved box seats that were up close to the front. These are original. The picture top left is from my project no wood parts for sale. The other two are the parts . Im taking offers on them I will be fair but these arenot cheap. Al

Met Stadium seats

I refinish and sell seats from the old Met Stadium in Minnesota (the Twins/Vikings original home, where the Mall of America now stands.) If anyone is looking for those, let me know. I also have stands available for them.

Website: http://vendiamo.com

I'll be listing more on my website once we start getting some warmer (above 32 degree) temperatures again. But you can call to see what will be available: 651-674-7777

About a month ago, a local news station came out and did a story on them:

And an affiliated station picked it up as well:

I'd be happy to take that Dodgers Jacket off your hands, if it's hiding/covering up your Ebbets Seat. :p

Beautiful displays!

I agree.....beautiful displays.

But you can keep you D**gers jacket ;)

perezfan 02-12-2014 11:13 AM

As a '70s Reds Fan, I still hate the Dodgers too. Remember those great rivalries, when both teams were in the West...

But that classic Jacket, in that condition... a mouth watering piece :o Just a beautiful work of art, from a time when they took true pride in workmanship.

Dave Grob 02-12-2014 04:10 PM

Dodgers Jacket
 
Have to agree on the 1970s Dodgers have grown up in Cincinnati during that time frame. As for jackets themselves, may have to start a new thread on those as I have a number of them and in my mind, they constitute an undervalued and significantly under researched artifact line.

It's an original window from Forbes Field

I was going to ask the same question about the window. Looks very much like the windows on the outer facade of Forbes Field. If so, wow!

Guys............Here's a section of Tiger Stadium riser style seats that I built brackets for out of heavy gauge angle iron, then had powder coated. They're in the lobby of my family's body shop and people comment and sit on them everyday. The most common comments are...... 'I remember sitting in those!' and 'I could go for a beer and a hot dog right now'.
