Auction of Pontiac Silverdome items is back on

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) An auction of thousands of items from the decrepit Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan is back on.

The online sell-off had been scheduled to get underway last month but was delayed.

RJM Auctions official Jim Passeno said Tuesday that the auction will begin Wednesday and run through June 18-19.

The Silverdome is the former home of the NFL's Detroit Lions and the NBA's Detroit Pistons. The 80,000-seat venue north of Detroit has fallen into disrepair. Its current owner is determined to cash in before it's too late.

Among the items available are pretzel warmers, a boxing ring, a soccer field, flat-screen televisions and scoreboards.
