Alrigth Cowboy fans, who wants a the throne of champions???

Want a piece of Dallas Cowboys history? How 'bout them urinals!

The Dallas Cowboys are having an auction of Texas Stadium fixtures that’s been more than 38 years in the making.

BidSpotter.com
This parking lot entrance awning adorned with a Dallas Cowboys star is among the Texas Stadium fixtures being sold at auction.
View larger More photos Photo store And in true fire-sale fashion, it seems that everything – even showerheads and urinals – must go.

Bidding on more than 600 items from the famed structure began this morning on the Web site BidSpotter.com. The auction closes at 7 p.m. Dec. 6.

Diehard Cowboys fans can bid on everything from turnstiles (starting at $300) to emergency phones placed throughout the stadium (starting at $50).

And for fans who have a lot of space to display their goods, there’s the monstrous banners draped over the side of the stadium advertising Dr Pepper, Pepsi and Ford. Or there’s the giant 30-foot-by-18-foot stadium entrance awnings perfect “for the end of your driveway or the gate to your ranch.”

Want something that’s been a little more personal to the Cowboys themselves? A urinal from the team’s locker room starts at $300. And a Cowboys locker room toilet – billed as the throne of champions – comes complete with an entire bathroom stall and starts at $300.
There’s also a trio of showerheads from the team’s locker room that starts at $500.

Terrell Owens’ locker starts at $2,000. Tony Romo’s starts at $3,000.

But there are also some bargains. Bidding on a sign warning fans not cook within 20 feet of the Corral starts at $10. And a glass-shaped sign advertising "Cowboyritas" starts at $25.

Irving, which owns the stadium, gets a cut from the memorabilia sales. The rest goes to the Cowboys.

The city will also retain 1,000 stadium seats and 100 square yards of artificial turf.

The city leases the stadium to the team, which is expected to vacate next spring. Under an exit agreement between the two entities, Irving can’t use the stadium’s name to market any new developments on the site.

They've done studies you know.... 60% of the time, it works every time

I'd expect them to start higher...

I saw somewhere that a set of spectator seats started at $600 and included 2 or 3 seats...

And LMAO at Romo's locker starting higher than TO's!!

They started off at $300/each when Jerry offered them to ticket holders first. Now, I think they're somewhere in the neighborhood of $150/ea.


But yes, you can buy as many as you want, there are still plenty available, from what I hear.
