The remaining bits and pieces of Detroit’s Tiger Stadium went on the auction block over the weekend.
After sitting in storage for eight years, the remaining memorabilia from Tiger Stadium was sold in an online auction over the weekend. The sale drew $192,729 in winning bids, but the amount doesn’t include the ballpark’s old seats that are being sold at a fixed price.
The most expensive item in the auction was a piece of fence around a light tower hit by Reggie Jackson’s home run in the 1971 All-Star game, which sold for $4,025. The fence piece came with a photo of the stadium and a Jackson baseball card.
Other top-selling items included $2,000 for a locker once used by Al Kaline, $3,800 for a 1968 World Series banner and $900 for the home dugout urinal. About 20 items went unsold, including some other lockers.
The Detroit Free-Press reports the auction netted the city nearly $193,000, as plans to demolish the park continue.
