Are you the type of sports memorabilia collector who not only has a lot of expendable income but also the free space to store what is essentially rubbish from a late and unloved ballpark?
If your answer is somehow "yes," then have we got the deal for you. The visitors dugout from the Seattle Kingdome is currently listed on eBay with a buy-it-now price of $7,499.99. That does not include the shipping it will take for a UPS or FedEx driver to curse your name or the sanding the benches will need after being stored outside all the years.
From the Center Field Sports listing:
OK, so maybe the intro to this post was a bit cynical. This would make for a great spot to host cocktail parties if you were to dress it up with wax figures of Gene Mauch, Doug DeCinces, Brian Downing and the rest of the 1985 California Angels. You could also drag it out to your local Little League field so today's children can experience all the enjoyment of playing in a personality-free dome that almost ended big-league baseball in the Pacific Northwest!
At the very least, it's a great listing to send to your significant other and temporarily instill the fear that you'll actually buy the thing. You know, kind of like that Jose Canseco head-homer cap we featured last week (which is now regrettably going for almost three times its estimated price after the attention it received here. Sorry, Jose.)
