RARE HIGHBURY North Bank Seats For Sale

Post by cr78 »

Hi,

Very rare seats from the North Bank, Highbury on ebay - search for item no 1217860002843 or '2 highbury stadium seats'

The MUST HAVE for any loyal Gooner who thought they had everything!

These 2 seats were purchased from Arsenal FC during the official Highbury memorabilia sell off in 2006.

These would already be really rare as obviously there was only one Highbury with a limited number of seats which were sold off only once when the stadium was re-developed.

But they are now EVEN RARER because the vast majority of seats had to be recalled due to a risk of a toxic metal – see below.

These seats were not recalled because they were from a safe section of the stadium. So the few safe seats are now very much COLLECTORS ITEMS which can only increase in value.

not very old though are they?

there were only seats installed in the North Bank for about the last 15 years at Highbury, if that.

Herd I doubt youve got any of the Berlin Wall as the guy I bought mine from said it was the only bit available in the UK :shock:

Really impressive place as well, major demo works in Merseyside :rubchin:

Was that the bit you got in Thailand, think some had got exported there in exchange for some liquid stuff :rubchin: :shock:
