I haven’t been able to un-box them, but my Tiger Stadium seats arrived today. If you’ve ever wondered how much two molded plastic stadium seats weigh, I can tell you: 90 lbs. At least that’s UPS’s estimate.
I’ll upload some photos soon but in the meantime, here’s some quick info on them:
- Filthy. A good hose-down and a sponge bath should get them sparkling new. Well, you know what I mean.
- Blue. I held out hope that orange seats would arrive but the more I thought about it, I rarely sat in the orange seats, so these will do just fine.
- Damaged. Not much, but the rivets on the left seat have popped off, presumably in shipping. They look simple enough to repair.
- 10 and 11. Those are the seat numbers. Man, do I wish I knew what section, row, etc., these seats came from.
I helped the UPS driver lift them off the truck. He was intrigued when I told him what was in the case. Of course, he wanted to see them. He thought it was neat but didn’t gush.
Perhaps he’s a bruised Diamondbacks fan.
Now, where to put these things…
