In October of last year, we ran the first in a series of â€śThe Art ofâ€¦â€ť segments, based on historic ballpark seats up for auction by Hunt Auctions. On Sat., we ran a second installment looking at some great antique baseball pinball machines.
Hunt Auctions is conducting a sports memorabilia and collectable cards public auction on Fri. and Sat. Feb 26 and 27 in King of Prussia, PA at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The highlighted piece is a 1978 Reggie Jackson game worn World Series jersey (look for a separate story on this shortly)
Today, weâ€™re going to tap back into that simplest of ballpark functions, the place to park your rear, yesâ€¦ the ballpark seat. These wooden pieces of history, sitting against nothing but a flat background, seem to jump out and remind us of a bygone era and are part of the collection up for grabs at the Hunt Auction event.
