Description

When National Park burned to the ground during the spring of 1911, the original steel and concrete structure took 18 short days to construct, but the park was too small and a double-decked grandstand was constructed in 1920. Griffith Stadium was still the American League’s lowest-capacity park (27,410) for many years. The Senators played at this brilliant park until 1961. Presented are three joined wooden stadium seats that were removed from the stadium prior to the demolition in 1965. A very limited number of true Griffith Stadium seats exist, and this pair comes with a notarized LOA received the day of purchase. Each seat has been painted a light peach color, but the original green paint is still present and can been in several regions. The seats are the popular “floor mounted” version and are free standing. The cast iron foundation and wooden slates are all original and in excellent working order. The pair of seats measures 29 inches in length and 30 inches tall. Due to the size/weight of this lot, the cost of shipping may be substantial.
