San Francisco’s Candlestick Park is closing after 54 years. The stadium – host of Giants baseball games, 49ers football, concerts and other events – will be demolished. It will be replaced with a mix of retail, entertainment and housing developments. "Renderings look like the kind of place where you could take the whole family to eat froyo and shop at Crate & Barrel," wrote Mike Oz of Yahoo! Sports. But before they tear down the Stick, fans will be able to purchase seats from the park. Based on condition and whether a seat is autographed by Candlestick Park legends like Willie Mays or Joe Montana, prices range from $749 to $3,500.
The stadium was the site of many historical moments--including Willie Mays’ 3,000th hit in 1970 and the 6.9-magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989--and on August 14, it will see its last. Paul McCartney will perform his “Farewell to Candlestick Park!” performance. The Beatles held their last live concert there in 1966. Tickets for the farewell performance are going for $75 to $3,658 each.
