BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — In early June, the Buffalo Bills started to receive new turf at New Era Field. Part of the old turf was set to be donated to ECC, but the rest was put up for auction.
The winner of that auction, Pat Brady, 27 of Buffalo, has decided to spread the turf, while profiting off it too. On June 9, Brady closed the bidding at $4,551. Today, he is selling up to 3-foot by 3-foot pieces of his awarded turf for money.
According to Brady, his $4,551 bought him half of New Era Field's turf, the sidelines and the end zones. All of which are listed on his website, TheBuffaloTurf.com, for different prices.
The field turf (green) starts at $30 (1x1) and prices as high as $100 (3x3). The sideline turf (white) begins selling at $35 (1x1) and raises to $80 (2x2). The end zone, which is the most expensive, begins pricing at $50 (1x1) and triples to $150 when 3x3.
If for some reason a Bills fan desires more than a 3x3 piece of turf, Brady does also offer specialty bulk pieces that range from 10 square feet to 100. These pieces cannot be resold for profit and must be used only for decorative purposes.
The best selling item so far is the 1x1 end zone turf followed by the field turf then sideline turf. A specialty cut piece of the 20 yard line is already sold out.
The $4,551 Brady paid in the original auction goes to Erie County's general fund.
County workers remove and replace the turf at New Era Field.
