I'm looking for Candlestick seats but am not willing to pay $700. Anyone got a lead?

Just so you guys that collect seats know the triple row Polo Grounds seats the Brooklyn Dodgers seat and Yankees bleacher bench are going up for auction in REA this month. The Yankees bleacher bench is fiberglass not aluminum super rare....

Default Forbes Field seats

I posted these in the memorabilia section a few months ago but not on here. I bought them in rough shape from Huggins & Scott Auctions. Cleaned them up and had to replace one slat and added a new base. Painted them grey which I believe was the last color. thiis is my 5th seat from an old stadium. I have Crosley Field, Cleveland Municiple, Yankee Stadium I, Comiskey Park and now Forbes.

Thanks. Getting a single worked out well because I really have no room for a pair.

I would love to own Yankee Stadium seats one day. Even if they are bleacher seats.

I'd like to get an Ebbets Field seat despite the park being gone before I was born. I like the old historic parks, the first steal and concrete ones. I really only have room for one more seat, maybe two, Fenway (wood), Cleveland (wood) and County Stadium in Milwaukee would be cool since I saw games played there. Yankee Stadium because of it's place in baseball history would be great as would Forbes.

I have Comiskey, Wrigley (3) one of which is bleacher, Polo Grounds, Crosley and Chicago Stadium

Did you buy any of the old Tinker Field/Griffith Stadium seats? I bought a pair and I've been lurking here trying to figure out how best to restore them.

Here is one of my seats, Tigers. Also a pic of my Property of the Des Moines Bruins seat cushion. I also have 2 Metrodone seats as well as a row of seats from the last Second Taylor Stadium remodel, all hanging in my shed.

I picked up my first set of stadium seats last week. Would anyone happen to have a connection to track down a replacement back slat for the one missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I love stadium seats....although shipping and displaying can be a bit of a drawback.

I think the stadium seats are cool as well. When I was about to start a stadium seat collection a fellow collecting friend said "the seats are uncomfortable as heck at the stadium, would you actually sit in the seats at home?" I thought he made a valid point and I have yet to purchase a seat. There is also the issue of space which is limited. More power to you seat collectors.

Yep, picked up the Comiskey set of four last week and nabbed a set of two Wrigley and an earlier Comiskey yesterday. Busy couple of weeks! I really liked those Shibe Seats too. I thought you got a good deal on those, congrats Randall!

I had a rather "portly" friend sit on my Seals Stadium cushion. I had to politely ask to to not sit on it (lest it "explode" its filling).

I was hoping the Shibe Seats were circa 1909 because the picture didn't show a side view. They were actually correct in stating they were circa 1930. Sean Walsh at Old Stadium Seats told me they were either put in in 1927 or 1934. But still pretty cool since they witnessed Some of Jimmie Foxx's HRs, Ted Williams .406 season ending game and Babe Ruth's last game. (among other things)

I have Wrigley seats in my den, Dodger Stadium in my living room, and Tiger Stadium buried in the garage because the lovely wife said "enough".

I am in the process of restoring a Crosley Field seat. This seat is the older style that were taken to the fairgrounds after 1970 and painted gray. My question for the experts is what was the original color of these seats. My research has shown people tend to restore them two different ways. The more popular way seems to be a forest green color while some restore them to more of a lighter green more closer to a teal color. I am in the sanding process and I can see this light green color all throughout the wood so that is the direction I am leaning. Any information from you experts or Reds fans who were blessed with being able to see Crosley first hand is greatly appreciated not only for my restoration but also my knowledge of the field.

I repainted mine in dark green. I think this was the last color at Crosley. Got Rose to sign it.

I also have one of the Crosley seats taken out in 1970 and painted gray. I'm assuming those were the original seats from day one of Crosley. I'm considering repainting it to it's original color but I'm not sure what color that would have been, red I assume. I'm curious if any original paint is beneath the gray. If I could get strip down to it's original patina, that would be great.

Here is my seat from Milwaukee County Stadium. I really like the wear and tear of years of use. I count 3 paint jobs. Original dark green, then light teal, and the top coat of medium green. The seat numbers were stamped into the wood slats instead of being painted on.
When the stadium was torn down in 2001, the Brewers presold seats and the #4(Molitor) and#19(Yount) were the first to go and have always been at a premium. I didn't get one at that time.
Fast forward 15 years. A buddy of mine had a coworker abruptly leave his company and left the seat in my pal's office. He didn't have the room for it, so he thought of me. Sometimes stuff just finds you
