The Seat Doctor – Bob Ralph

Antique stadium seats can be found littering attics, closets, basement and garage junk piles across the US. These long-forgotten relics of sports history were most likely abandoned in frustration, during attempts to restore them to their former splendor.

Today, these seats are being treated under the care and expertise of our long-time partner, Bob Ralph, alias “The Seat Doctor.”


Examples

Shown below is the restoration of a row of four Shibe Park (aka Connie Mack Stadium) Philadelphia seats.

“We took four in a row, ratty, and at customer request made a double red and a single green. All authentic ballpark color match, and number font matches.”
