1912 Redland/Crosley Field Stadium Seat Chair. Home of the Cincinnati Reds from 1912 until its closing in 1970. Retaining original stanchions/sides, wood, and hardware.
The original seat number is #14 (Pete Rose). The outline of the number 14 is visible on the top back slat, underneath the top coat of grey paint. Unfortunately, the number outline is not visible on the photos.
The solid hickory seat stands are included. They measure 22" in length.
Known as Redland Field upon its opening in 1912, it became Crosley Field in the 1930's in recognition of owner Powel Crosley Jr. Crosley Field closed in June of 1970, as the Reds moved into Riverfront Stadium.
The pictured seat is the seat you will receive. The original Crosley Green Paint remains underneath the top coat of grey. Seat is fully functional, wood is solid, and the metal is chip free. The top coat of grey paint was not a paint color from Crosley Field, it was added sometime after the seats were removed from Crosley.
Obvious chipping of the top coat of grey paint and minimal surface rust.
Seat was manufactured by the Heywood Wakefield Company. They installed seats in other venues of the same era including: Forbes Field (1909), Comiskey Park (1910), Ebbets Field (1913), and Wrigley Field (1914).
Certificate of Authenticity included.
