Cowboy Fans Take Home Their Piece of Texas Stadium

The auction ended before Christmas, but die-hard Cowboy fans who placed winning bids for Texas Stadium memorabilia finally got to pick up their items today.

Bill O'Dwyer came buy to pick up a few section signs, a big play clock, a turnstile and picture he bought for just over $4,000. To him, the goods are worth the money.

"The section 29, 27 signs, we sat in them since we were kids, so that's why we bought that and we got some seats coming also, so a little bit of emotional stuff is involved in that also." O'Dwyer said.

Urinals from the Cowboys' locker room were also sold, and the new owners are getting them with stains and all.

"They get it just like it is, we don't power-wash them, they get the whole deal, it's theirs," said Jim Hallam, as he deconstructed the urinals and showers that people purchased.

In all, more than 600 items were sold for more than $245,000 dollars.

Dan Rosenthal with Schneider Industries, the company helping sell the items, said buyers came from all over the United States.

"The stuff is being shipped to 49 of the 50 states. The only state that was left out was Wyoming." Rosenthal said.

Oddly enough, one of Wyoming's biggest sports team is the University of Wyoming.  Their mascot is the Cowboys.

List of some of the items sold:

Aikman/Staubach Locker: $5,000
Michael Irvin Locker: $3,000
Sideline Phone: $250
Tony Romo Locker Placard: $1,300

Not all the items up for auction sold. Emmit Smith's locker didn't meet the minimum $2,000 reserve.

Fans will have a chance to bid on it Feb 20-22 when the Cowboys host a fan extravaganza in The Corral at Texas Stadium. More signs that were found, pieces of the sideline wall, and seats will be auctioned off.

Rosenthal also said the famous "hole" of Texas Stadium will be sold. He plans to take a picture of it, and frame it with a certificate of authenticity and ownership.
