Cowboys Holding Texas Stadium Auction of Collectibles, Memorabilia
If there’s one positive to teams moving into new stadiums — which so many seem to be doing lately — it’s the auctions they have of memorabilia from the old venue. For instance, my Uncle, a big Mets fan, plans to purchase a few chairs from Shea Stadium. If he’s feeling particularly saucy, he might just splurge on the foul poles to place them in his backyard and piss off his homeowners association. Personally, I can’t think of collectibles much cooler than some foul poles in your backyard. The Cowboys are a football team so they won’t have foul poles for sale, but they sure have a ton of cool swag available now that they’re moving into a new stadium (and you can purchase the goalposts!).
You can buy a welcome to Texas Stadium gate that you can place at the end of your driveway. You can get some turnstiles to place at your front door — pretty badass if you ask me. Benches from the sidelines, shower heads from the locker room. There’s the Cowboys team helmet injury cart that would look pretty sweet at your local golf range. You can get a locker room toilet and stall where who knows how many drug tests were rigged! Most auctions end on December 6th. Too bad you have to pay a premium and arrange all the shipping details, but still, some of that stuff is priceless — especially if you’re a die-hard fan. Heads up on the auction via Unfair Park.
