The Braves moved from Milwaukee to Atlanta in 1966 and called Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium home a year after construction was completed. In 1974 Hank Aaron achieved his 715th homerun and broke Babe Ruth's record. After the initial excitement of baseball in the south wore off, crowds diminished. In 1976, an all-time low of 970 fans paid to see an Astros/Braves double-header. Some fans have doubted that there ever were wooden seats in the park: the records of American Seating show that 51,581 wooden seats were installed in 1964, and that these were replaced in 1976 with plastic seats. These blue-painted wood seats are used to make this item. The image to the right shows the Stadium before its demolition with Turner Field behind it.
The 1970's found most Major League Ballparks converting to plastic seats from wood. This product is crafted from the old, wooden seats. Due to the age of the wood and uniqueness of the seats, no two products will be exactly the same. The painted surfaces may be multicolored due to layers of paint.
