As you no doubt know, the Orange Bowl is no longer. It’s been flattened and workers are clearing the site to make way for a new ballpark for the Marlins. At least that’s the current plan. All bets are off as to whether the Marlins actually meet their anticipated April 2011 opening.
But pieces of the OB live on. In homes and offices. In backyards. You’ve snapped up light fixtures, lockers, orange seats, wooden seats, photos, pieces of the stadium’s concrete.
Under its salvage contract with the city of Miami, Mounted Memories, a division of Plantation-based Dreams Inc., held a January celebration, to honor the old stadium and then agreed to share 15 percent of all sales of items from the stadium and 10 percent from those sold at auction.
So far, the city has received $235,884.78 from the sale of items, city records show.
Records also show there are still plenty of items available, including signs, seats, framed photos, and T-shirts. Still looking for something? Check out the online store here.
