Continued: Good seats going fast at Metrodome

Salable seats must be removed by Jan. 18, when the lights go off and the roof drops, intentionally this time, at the Dome. The Vikings’ new $1 billion stadium is slated to open at the same site in the summer of 2016.

Wide-ranging orders

Orders have come from far and wide, including a military serviceman in Japan, Albrecht said. He also has taken orders from Florida, California and Pennsylvania.

Roger Chladek, 62, drove from Farmington to claim six seats. Three will go to the basement room where he watches the Vikings and three to a brother-in-law’s family in Washington, D.C.

“It’s a little piece of history,” he said. “It’s remembrances of the Vikings, even though they haven’t been a winner for a long time.”

As for the games McKinnon remembers, the records show that the Vikings beat the Rams, the Wolves lost to the Bulls and Michael Jordan, and the Twins had to have won: They never lost in eight World Series games at the Dome.
