    I have some turf (1 section from the 1970's mat and 1 section from the early 1990's mat) from Three Rivers Stadium, and a set of the architectural AND construction blueprints from PNC Park.

      A friend of mine got a vile of infield dirt from every stadium a couple of years ago. He's a teacher and used it as part of a lesson.

          I have one of the green wooden seats from old Tiger Stadium (or shall I call it Tiger Stadium Classic?). These were replaced by plastic, blue and orange seats in the late 70s. I am not sure how long my seat was in use in the old stadium.

          My other stadium artifact is not from a baseball stadium, but is every bit as cool IMO. It is a framed piece of the artificial turf that was in University of Michigan Stadium (football) from 1969 to 1990, which included the entire 20 year tenure of Coach Bo Schembechler.

              Sad story: Went to Old Comiskey Park as new park was being built. Took a brick from the green base of the stadium--the guard saw me and gave me a Sox game schedule. I had the brick for some time and then lost it when we moved homes five years ago. Silly thing, I think of it often and makes me feel, well you know... (I still have the schedule and pictures however.

                A real estate agent in my home town has a pair of original seats from Ebbet's Field that he has afixed to his front porch.The owner of the seats is Don Thompson and he was a player for the Brooklyn Dodgers in the early 1950's.

                Don told me once that his two best friends while he was playing in the minors and majors were Chuck Conners and Clem Labine.

                  That's pretty cool, he must be 80 or older, right? I would give anything for one of those seats!

                  Thanks for the story.

                        Reds seats

                        I have a pair of seats from Riverfront Stadium. My Dad had a brick from Crosley Field. He passed a way last month and I've been trying to find it.

                          The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America is ruled by it like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again. Oh, people will come, Ray. People will most definitely come. -James Earl Jones as Terence Mann in Field Of Dreams

                            I have seen them on sale at Jungle Jim's, of all places. I believe there are a couple shops in the Montgomery area that have a few, if you believe Lance McCallister.

                              I have a cast iron "folding chair" that was used as an infield box seat at Tiger Stadium. The folks at Detroit Athletic company (who still have a few of them) say they were removed in 1977, but could be original to the park. I have seen seats like them in pics and video of the 1934 World Series.
