SUPER SPORTS SATURDAY

1920s Braves Field Press Box Stadium Seat

The 1920’s were the Golden Age of baseball. All but two of the stadiums are gone from that era, Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. Stadiums then were built to last, unlike the ambiance lacking typical box stadiums of the 60’s and 70’s. Braves Field was built-in 1915 and was home to many sports teams including the Braves who played there between 1915 to 1952, before moving to Milwaukee. Boston University purchased Braves Field and turned it into a football field, demolishing most of the original structure renaming it Nickerson Field replacing, the grass with Astroturf. This nostalgic piece is one of only two known stadium seats that sat in the Braves Field Press Box and recently sold at auction for $239.00. Notice the rare shade of green paint?

    Sports collectibles are a great way to connect with our past. Not only to the players and teams themselves but to friends, family , and places in time.
