Want to relive 1995? Well now you can, for a price of $2,999.99 and shipping costs. Pieces of the home and visitors dugouts of the Kingdome are currently listed on ebay by sports memorabilia dealer, Center Field Sports.
According to one of the listings, shipping is 100% of the buyer's responsibility. Ben Greaby, the owner and president of Center Field Sports almost had a buyer for the entire visitor's bench in Boston, until the person found out shipping costs would exceed $10,000.
The benches are not in perfect condition as they have been stored outside for the past five years.
See a picture and the accompanying seller description for the dugouts after the jump.
This is a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of the original home dugout from the Kingdome in Seattle, Washington.
This dugout was on the 3rd base side in the Kingdome.
Your bidding on one individual section!
This is the sections has the doorway that lead into the Mariners clubhouse. Along with a bench.
Think of the history these have seen and the players that have sat on these benches- Ken Griffey Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Randy Johnson, Edgar Martinez, Jay Buhner, Dan Wilson, Dennis Martinez, Jamie Moyer and countless more.
These benches have been stored outdoors for the past 5 years so the wood on the benches themselves are not perfect. If your planning on using them indoors they could be sanded and refinished.
They would look great on a local baseball field for everyone to enjoy.
Shipping is 100% buyers responsibility. You will need a fork lift to unload. We have one to load them up. If your within 50 miles of Seattle we can help arrange shipping.
The Kingdome was imploded in March 2000, but it looks like the dugouts were saved. Is the 10K plus price tag worth it? After a person sits in it, basks in the glory of the old dugouts, I'm struggling to think of any other practical uses for the dugout.
