WRIGLEY FIELD — Want to know how it felt to sit in Wrigley Field when the Chicago Cubs won it all? It'll cost a little extra.
The Cubs are selling stadium seats from Wrigley Field removed during the 2015 and 2016 offseasons. The sale begins Friday, with 2015 seats going for $799 for a set of two, and a smaller number of seats removed from Wrigley in 2016 on sale for $899.
Customers will also have to pay $132.99 for shipping, and pick-up is not offered. Each set of seats comes with a certificate of Major League Baseball authentication.
Assembly is required, and the Cubs warn that using the seats without proper installation could be dangerous. The club recommends hiring a flooring professional for the process.
Season ticket holders got first dibs on their specific seats in an early-bird sale that began Monday afternoon. More seats could also become available as construction continues.
The Cubs are in the third year of renovations at Wrigley Field. This year, work included the removal of ballpark seats to make way for premiere clubs like the American Airlines 1914 Club.
The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by an entity controlled by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
