    Description

    ARLINGTON STADIUM SEAT, AUTOGRAPHED BY NOLAN RYAN.

    Plans for a new stadium were started in 1959 to service the Dallas-Fort Worth area and designed to attract a Continental League franchise. Opening day was in 1965 and the tenants were the Double-A Texas Spurs and the stadium was then known as Turnpike Stadium. Seating capacity was 10,600. The first expansion occurred in 1970, to accommodate 20,000 and in 1971 Major League Baseball came to Arlington Stadium, when the Washington Senators moved to Texas and were renamed the Rangers. Capacity was again increased to allow 35,649 spectators. The last addition came in 1974, when peak capacity was 41,284. By the 1990's the Texas Rangers decided on a new stadium and a new venue was constructed just a few hundred yards from Arlington Stadium, which was eventually demolished in 1994. Seat # 17 is constructed of brown plastic and is signed by Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, whose statistics are unparalleled.  Condition appears to be excellent. The white mark in the photo is a stray paint mark and can easily be removed. Please note: Due to the size and/or weight of this lot, additional shipping costs may apply.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
