Craigslist Weirdness: Own Percy Ellsworth’s Cleveland Browns stadium seat

Update: The $200 Craigslist chair was originally sold on Ebay for a mere $17.50 and is now being flipped by an enterprising fan. The moral of the story? There are way better deals on Ebay than Craigslist, I guess.

Browns chair story update

———- Original Post ————

Sometimes scouring Craigslist can yield very strange results.

According to one listing, you can purchase a bright orange stadium seat from Cleveland Browns stadium that was presumably never installed in the stadium at all. And it will only cost you $200 if you pay asking price.

Even more strange is that the seller apparently purchased this at a storage locker auction and the locker is alleged to have belonged to former Browns player Percy Ellsworth.

Ellsworth played with the Browns in 2000-2001 and apparently just long enough to acquire a Cleveland Browns stadium seat and enough other stuff to justify a storage locker rental.

    If the original screws and washers are included count me in.

  • You might laugh at Percy, but getting this Browns seat was a better investment than getting a PSL.

    Haslam is pissed he didn’t get to use the PSL sales ploy on his “customers.”

    thank heavens he put down that broken-down box so that the seat wouldn’t touch the floor directly.
