RARE - Vintage Original Metropolitan "The Met" Seat #1

This original Metropolitan seat #1 has seen its' days at the OLD MET, therefore it has normal wear and tear throughout the entire seat. Normal aged scratches, knicks, chipping of the paint, etc...SEE PHOTOS

(Nothing has been refurbished or restored! ALL ORIGINAL!!)

These original seats were BOLTED into the concrete and/or wood base. The bolts would have been inserted horizontally into the concrete/wood to hold the seat upright.

"The Met" Bio:

Metropolitan Stadium (often referred to as "the Met", "the Ice Palace" when the Minnesota Vikings played, "Met Stadium", or now "the Old Met" to distinguish from the Metrodome) was a sports stadium that once stood in Bloomington, Minnesota, just outside Minneapolis. The area where the stadium once stood is now the site of the Mall of America. The Minneapolis Millers minor league baseball team played at Met Stadium from 1956 to 1960. The Minnesota Twins and the Minnesota Vikings then played at the "Met" from 1961 to 1981. The NASL soccer team Minnesota Kicks also played there from 1976 to 1981.
