You have a unique opportunity to own a piece of history in purchasing seating from the Carolina Coliseum (Frank McGuire Arena) that comes with a letter of authenticity. This seating is being removed as a part of a renovation project that begins in July 2014.|
The seating was the original seating in the Carolina Coliseum in use from 1968 until the present. This seating was used for events in the Frank McGuire Arena including Gamecock basketball; family shows such as the circus, ice skating events, rodeo, wrestling, and motorsports events; popular entertainment such as rock and roll, R & B, country & western, hip hop, and classical music concerts; political events; high school sports championships such as basketball, wrestling, and cheerleading; and numerous USC and high school graduations.
The seating is being sold in as-is condition in segments of 3 connected seats as shown in the picture. Also as shown, to use the seating, a purchaser will need to make an adaption to the rear legs of the seating since the rear legs will not rest on the ground when removed.
The seats are being sold for $60 a section (3 seats) on a first-come, first-served basis due to the limited supply. If you would like to purchase a section, you must contact The Surplus Property Office, 1441 Boston Avenue West Columbia, SC 29170 and by phone at 803-896-6880 by July 31, 2014, and reserve your section with payment by Cash or check in person, or credit card over the phone.
There is one section that will be at the Surplus Property Office for inspection. The sections will be removed in July and will be taken to the State Surplus Property Warehouse on Boston Avenue in West Columbia, SC. You will be notified of the time period during which you can pick your piece of history from the great years of the Carolina Coliseum.
