The day after the Minnesota Vikings finished one of the worst football seasons in team history, workers began harvesting items so fans could remember the Metrodome, which is being torn down to build a new billion-dollar stadium for the NFL franchise.

Part of the job is salvaging about 20,000 of the stadium’s aging but still usable bright blue seats.

Workers began tearing down the structure this week and the public can buy the seats for $60 each, plus tax. Community organizations and nonprofit groups will be charged $40 a seat. Fans with an attachment to a specific seat or group of seats will be charged $80 each, plus tax.

The seat removal is being handled by Albrecht Sign Co of Fridley. Albrecht also installed signs at Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins. The Dome had more than 60,000 blue seats. Orders must be placed with Albrecht by Jan. 7. Orders for more than 200 seats must be received by the firm by Thursday.
