so buyers should park in lot B on the north side of 35th Street.
Is it still $15 to park??

Knowing JR, maybe that shouldn't be in teal.

What a bargain! $30 for a 10 year-old unused seat.

Do you really want to spend money on a piece of plastic that doesn't have any history or sense of charm attached to it? Wooden seats from Old Comiskey were one thing. These blue, plastic hunks of junk are another. I hope they do well with the sale, but I won't be buying any of them.

These seats appear to need to be mounted vertically. Not really going to be much use unless you have some concrete walls to mount them to.

There are a couple of things that I've tried to mount Vertically, let me tell you it's not easy! But if you can get it, it's well worth all the hard work!

Just to clear up a question ahead of time... None of the proceeds from the seats will go towards the 2004 pay roll will they?

The money goes to Sox charities.

This is the time for everyone who has complained abiut the seats - go buy one and paint it green.

Great business idea:

Buy all of Blue seats for $30, paint them all green, and sell them back to the Sox for $50 a piece.

If anyone is going, I'd like to buy two from you. As long as the price isn't too inflated. :D: (I don't feel like dragging my dead ass up there.)

well....there is no place to put the bolts....the construction crews torched the seats off the concrete...I was at the cell late one night to "liberate" some excess stuff(not seats...they were already gone)...and the concrete from the ud was lying in sections onthe gropund...i was able to see clearly that the bolts for the seats were still on the concrete....read the sox release again......they are sold in "as is" condition...it also mentions that the seats may NOT have armrests.....they tore the seats up to sell.....this all explains why they are 30-50 bucks.....go the the phillies site, they have seats on bases , but those run for 400+...you get what you pay for

Stupid Jerry!!!! He had a perfect opportunity to collect extra revenue and put it towards his team in the name of civic pride and all he's going to do with it is help people in need. He is soooooo money hungry.

I'm sure if you hunt around eBay long enough one will pop up, but get ready to pay out your nose. I'm much more interested in a brick from Old Comiskey.

Maybe my mind is in the gutter, but I laughed my a$$ off when I read this..........What were the "couple of things"?
