Twenty-two miles of California redwood bleacher-style seats were installed prior to the 1927 dedication of Michigan Stadium. In 1965, the benches were clad in blue fiberglass to prevent discoloration and further weathering of the wood. During a 2005 infrastructural upgrade at the Big House, a very limited number of these seats were salvaged, preserved in a warehouse about 300 yards from the stadium, and authenticated by Michigan Athletics for use in our products. Now you have a chance to own a piece of Michigan sports history!
