MINNEAPOLIS - More than 30 years after it opened, some of the things that helped make the Metrodome what it was are now up for auction.

"A lot of history in one building," smiled Tim Soby, Auction Manager.

The history is being parceled off, piece by piece, and you can find all of the items at www.minnbid.org.

From the red chairs to the blue ones, green tarps to the blue baggy that sat in right field, it's all for sale to the highest bidder.

"We do run our online auctions for a minimum of seven days, usually it's 7 to 10 days," said Soby.

One of the more original items uncovered and available for purchase is the pitcher's mound.

If you're thinking World Series 1987, Game 7, Jack Morris, think again.

"This one was put in in 2004, I believe, so it was post World Series wins," Soby explained.

The current bid for the mound is at $360.

The blue baggy is rolled up and being sold in two parts, the current highest bid for one of the portions is $260.

You can find tarps that covered the field, boards used for stage productions, as well as four basketball scoreboards, all of which are up for auction.

As more items are dismantled, they'll be added to the website, officials said.
