Silverdome seats, signs and more up for auction

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- Seats, signs and even urinals from the Detroit Lions' former home will be going up for auction.

The Pontiac Silverdome is owned by Triple Investment Group, which says the auction will be held May 12-16.

Plymouth-based RJM Auctions will oversee the auction. A pre-auction sale of Silverdome seats began this week, with prices starting at $100 each.

RJM Auctions facilities manager Jim Passeno tells the Detroit Free Press that if buyers are willing to pay, then every seat will be sold.

The Silverdome had 80,000 seats, although some are thought to have weather damage after much of the stadium's roof was shredded by a winter storm early last year.

The Silverdome opened in 1975. It has been used only sporadically since 2002, when the Lions moved to Ford Field downtown.
