    silverdomeThe Silverdome (formerly known as the Pontiac Silverdome) was once the largest stadium in the National Football League (NFL) until FedEx Field in suburban Washington, D.C. opened in 1997 and the Silverdome was once the home of various Detroit’s sports teams like the Detroit Lions and the Detroit Pistons.

    However, after the Lions departure, the Silverdome went through some tough times. Over the years, the Silverdome was closed, auctioned off, reopen and finally in January of 2013, the roof was permanently deflated as an energy saving measure during upcoming renovations. However, in early 2014, the roof was reported to have suffered “extensive damage”, with pieces lying on the playing surface and seats.

    Now an online auction is planned for Pontiac Silverdome artifacts on May 12 through May 16 and according to WXYZ, people will be able to bid on seats, the scoreboard, signs, toilets, furniture and more.
