Collectors Buying Up Pieces of Metrodome ‘Baggie’
Even though the Minnesota Twins haven’t played a game there in three years, the Metrodome is still attracting the attention of some baseball fans eager to keep the memories of those indoor years alive.
A pair of collectors have purchased the Metrodome’s old right-field wall after paying more than $3,000 for pieces of the ‘Baggie’.
Two 16-foot-high, 190-foot-long sections of the fence sold during an online auction this week. One went for $2,025 and the other for $1,000. 190 bids were received for the items.
The 23-foot high wall was used when the Minnesota Twins played at the Dome from 1982-2009.
