The Spectrum “U” is Being Sold for $2,500 on eBay

Spectrum_u
Or best offer!

I made a note to check eBay today to see what sort of weird stuff fans would be selling from Saturday's legal Spectrum looting.  As expected, I found a few chairs and other assorted items, but then I came across this.  We'll just let the item description do the talking.  ALL CAPS ALERT.

THIS IS IT!! THE ONE PICTURED IN SUNDAYS PHILLY INQUIRER 11-7-10..THE GIANT LETTER "U" FROM THE SPECTRUM SIGN THAT WAS ON ITS BRICK FACADE ..THE "U" IS 67" X 55" X 8" AND IN GREAT CONDITION..HAS 5/8" THREADED NUT AT EACH U END FOR SUSPENDING OR MOUNTING ETC….U COULD MAKE A CHAIR OUT OF IT OR CHILDS SWING ETC ETC..THIS IS THE BEST AND MOST "U"SABLE OF ALL THE FACADE LETTERS WHICH ARE SCARCE AND GONE!!..IVE BEEN GOING TO THE SPECTRUM FOR 37 YEARS AND WILL MISS THAT OLD BUILDING…THIS NEEDS A GOOD HOME..EMAIL ME FOR ANYTHING,/PREFER PICKUP AND I CAN HOLD IT IF PAID FOR..IM AN HR FROM PHILLY OR NYC BY 6 FLAGS CENTRAL NJ..THANKYOU

That's right, you could make the most dangerous children's swing ever constructed out of it.  Or perhaps a comically large magnet for your next Warner Bros. production.  The choice is yours, but they prefer pickup.  Phew, that's a relief.  We were really worried how USPS would classify a five foot tall "U" designed for threaded mounting.

Here's the link if you're so inclined.  Remember, folks, they will take the best offer.

How can you not love this city?

  1. Someone needs to ebay cockblock this asshole. It was only up on the building since 2002-3ish when it was renamed Wachovia Spectrum. No nostalgia or historical significance to it at all. Id pay $25 for it tops.

  2. She could probably get in trouble from Ebay with that. Big LOL if you look through the other items they have for sale on that account.

  3. james- cool it with the fag comments. and we don’t hustle for money? take a look at some of the times that this site is updated then tell me i don’t hustle. i would venture to guess most of the time you’re either asleep or drunk when i’m working on this site.
