Own a piece of Pittsburgh sports history from the old Three Rivers Stadium with this amazing lot of salvaged memorabilia. The prize jewel in this group is a set of 3 original stadium seats that are mounted on wooden bases with caster wheels. There is a single seat as well as a double seat configuration. Obviously, the steel frames show wear consistent with age and use and the plastic fold down seats and backs are in good shape. Seats are numbers 5, 9 and 10 and they each measure 20"W x 29"H.
Along with these 3 seats, there are a couple of other stadium "necessities" you might not consider to be memorabilia, but.. hey, who do you know that can say they own an actual porcelain sink and cast iron 48-inch trough urinal from one of the old Three Rivers Stadium restrooms? You won't want to piss away your chance to win this amazing historic Pittsburgh sports lot!
A Certificate of Authenticity is included which shows a date of 2001 when these items were obtained by the previous owner.
Three Rivers Stadium was a multi-purpose stadium located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, from 1970 to 2000. It was home to the Pittsburgh Pirates of Major League Baseball and the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League. Built as a replacement for Forbes Field, which opened in 1909, the $55 million ($367.0 million today) multi-purpose facility was designed to maximize efficiency. Ground was broken in April 1968 and an oft behind-schedule construction plan lasted for 29 months. The stadium opened on July 16, 1970, when the Pirates played their first game there. In the 1971 World Series, Three Rivers Stadium hosted the first World Series game played at night. The following year, the stadium was the site of the Immaculate Reception. The final game in the stadium was won by the Steelers on December 16, 2000. Three Rivers Stadium also hosted the Pittsburgh Maulers of the United States Football League and the University of Pittsburgh Panthers football team for a single season each. After its closing, Three Rivers Stadium was imploded in 2001, and the Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Steelers moved into newly built stadiums: PNC Park and Heinz Field, respectively.
