Auction of Pontiac Silverdome items is back on

The Silverdome is seen in Pontiac, Mich., Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2009. For a little more than $7 a seat, a Canadian company is about to buy the Silverdome and its 127-acre site from hard-pressed city of Pontiac. A judge cleared the way this week for sale of the 80,300-seat stadium for $583,000, or about a quarter cent on the dollar it cost to build in 1975 ($220 million in today's dollars) as home for the NFL's Detroit Lions.

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) — An auction of thousands of items from the decrepit Pontiac Silverdome in Michigan is back on.

The online sell-off had been scheduled to get underway last month but was delayed.

RJM Auctions official Jim Passeno said Tuesday that the auction will begin Wednesday and run through June 18-19.

The Silverdome is the former home of the NFL’s Detroit Lions and the NBA’s Detroit Pistons. The 80,000-seat venue north of Detroit has fallen into disrepair. Its current owner is determined to cash in before it’s too late.

Among the items available are pretzel warmers, a boxing ring, a soccer field, flat-screen televisions and scoreboards.
