The auction is over, but there are still some Dallas Cowboys Texas Stadium stuff left and it’s heading out the door this weekend at an autograph event.
The turf is gone, the famous white stars around the stands have been sold off but there’s a lot of stuff inside a stadium and the Dallas Cowboys haven’t quite squeezed every cent out of the place yet.
This weekend, they’re holding one final Texas Stadium farewell party with a lot of memorabilia up for grabs.
The sale/autograph event takes place February 21st and 22nd at the Texas Stadium Corral – located at Gate 8 behind the Texas Stadium Pro Shop.
According to a news release, the event is "designed to celebrate the rich history of Texas Stadium and to give valued Dallas Cowboys fans a chance to be the first to own a piece of that history".
Past and present players will drop by to sign autographs including Drew Pearson, Mel Renfro and Roy Williams. Among the items that will be for sale: pieces of lockers, section, directional and concession signs, photos, banners, pieces of the goal posts and wall around the field, Texas, US and Cowboys flags flown during games and autographed memorabilia.
One of the most popular items during the team’s recent Stadium auction, the stars that lined the lower levels of the stands proved to be a hot ticket. As the team began its move to a $1.1 billion stadium complex in Arlington, team officials found old stars used in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s that will be up for sale this weekend.
“Schneider Industries, Inc is excited to be part of this unique experience.” said Bruce Schneider, president of Schneider Industries. “As the country’s premier Sports Venue Sale Specialists, we have held numerous successful events similar to this one in the past for venues such as the St. Louis Cardinals and Busch Stadium, Detroit Tiger Stadium and the St. Louis Arena. Events such as these give devoted fans the opportunity to celebrate important milestones with their team and fellow fans.”
The gates open at 9 AM Saturday and 10 AM Sunday, but True Blue Silver Members will receive special access into the Farewell to Texas Stadium Fan Fest and Stadium Memorabilia Sale Friday from 3pm – 5pm.
