The Astrodome Is Holding an Everything-Must-Go Sale this Saturday

As Tim Newcomb wrote in August, the Houston Astrodome is in a state of flux (decay). As the November 5th vote to determine if the county will fund a $217 million renovation looms, relics of the building's former life are being sold off this Saturday.

The Houston Chronicle has the details:

Highlights of the sale include roughly 500 pairs of seats to be sold for $200 per pair. A 12 inch by 12 inch piece of turf will go for $20. There's a limit of four pairs of seats (eight seats total) per person and a limit of four squares of turf per person. An auction for the higher-end items, like turnstiles, dugout benches, football benches, and on-deck circles from visiting National League teams will open at 9:30 am.

Compared to some sports memorabilia we've seen, these prices seem pretty reasonable. But if they wanted to maximize profit, it might've been prudent to wait until the Astros field a legitimate Major League roster.
