Have you ever wanted to own a piece of Kyle Field? If so, you’re in luck. Texas A&M is selling the playing field grass in order to make room for a new surface to be installed in 2014.
Both pallets (450 square feet) and single squares are available for purchase, for $400 and $20, respectively.
The university will harvest the tifway-bermuda over seeded with rye grass following Nov. 9′s game against Mississippi State – the last home game of the year.
For those seriously interested, there are a couple of specifications (via Texas A&M):
The buyer will be required to pick up in person the complete order at Kyle Field on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 10. Texas A&M will fork lift the pallets into/onto the buyer’s truck or trailer. No requests for specific sections of the field will be accepted. No sod will be shipped.
Successful buyers will receive specific pick up instructions from Texas A&M.
Each buyer will receive a certificate of authenticity signed by longtime Texas A&M fields manager Leo Goertz. Also, each buyer will receive a “care guide” containing instructions and suggestions for grass care from Goertz.
If you’re feeling like a real fan, go ahead and load up a truck full and fill your backyard with the same grass Johnny Manziel won a Heisman Trophy on.
