Description

For the better part of the 20th century St. Louis' Sportsman's Park was the home to Major League Baseball's Cardinals and Browns as well as the NFL's Cardinals. Hosting several All-Star and championship games, its highlight event may have been the 1964 World Series, where the Cards beat the Yankees in a legendary seven-game series. Presented is a queue of three chairs from the stadium which was demolished in 1966. The chairs combine to measure 64 inches long and 29 inches tall and are currently freestanding as they are attached to the original ground-bases. The extremely scarce wooden seats display well with the original paint, though several coats are present. Featuring the original 3, 4, and 5 seat markers, these stadium seats are both practical and easily displayed. Two of the original screws are missing, one back-rung shows significant wear and the reverse of the back-rungs shows reference marks. Otherwise the rungs show varying degrees of paint and weather-marks with some oxidation visible on the metal frame. It should be noted that this seldom seen trio can be easily disassembled and made into two independent freestanding chairs. Local pick-up is encouraged as shipping charges will be substantial.
