The Dallas Cowboys’ home since Roger Staubach is being dismantled and distributed to fans and collectors who bought pieces of the place.
It was state of the art in the early 1970s, but Texas Stadium is now a relic. The Dallas Cowboys have played their final game in the venue and over the weekend, those who bought items in the stadium memorabilia auction stopped in to pick them up.
The Cowboys have already made over $245,000 from the stadium’s contents and that figure should go higher when the team sells leftovers in a few weeks. Pieces of lockers, section, directional and concession signs, photos, banners, pieces of the goal posts and wall around the field, Texas, U.S. and Cowboys flags flown during games and autographed memorabilia will be sold then.
But late last week, they were tearing out seats and rolling up turf while fans loaded goods for transport to their collector rooms, basement bars and offices. Stadium seats are one of the most popular items any time old venues shut down as fans scramble to acquire something they can use in their hobby rooms, bars, offices and dens. The Dallas Morning News was there to capture it.
You can buy Texas Stadium seats and memorabilia on eBay now.
