Lot 33. Forbes Field Original 1909 Seat. An ornate metal stanchion on each side identifies this seat as an original installed in Forbes Field as it was being readied for the 1909 season. The seat was present in 1909 when Honus Wagner outplayed Ty Cobb in the World Series, in 1935 when Babe Ruth hit his final home run and in 1960 when Bill Mazeroski’s most important home run brought Pittsburgh its third world championship. The wood components of this seat, which appear to be original, have been stripped. In fact, we believe the seat to be completely original, except for screws that have been used to hold the four back slats in place and to attach the seat to a wood base. In addition, the seat comes with three slats and a seat bottom that retain their original light-green paint. This type of seat was used in limited sections of Forbes Field. It is a rare, fine specimen! Winning Bid $1,302.
