MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota Vikings fans started picking up pieces of Metrodome history on Friday.
Those who purchased the bright blue seats were allowed to load up and haul them away.
"To come in here and pick up a couple of seats is picking up a little bit of the Metrodome history and some of the excitement that has happened here over the years," explained Doug Machacek.
A number of organizations wanted the seats for new or old ball parks, while some fans had plans of their own.
"I'm going to building a little mounting stand for them and they'll go in the basement and hopefully when I build an outdoor hockey rink, maybe next week because it'll be so cold, I'll put them out there," said Jim Roehl.
The seats range in price from $40 to $80.
The purchase must be made through Albrecht Signs, based in Fridley. For more information on how to purchase seats, go to albrechtsigncompany.com.
