The Lions haven't played in the Silverdome since 2001, but the indoor stadium still stands just north of Detroit, in Pontiac, Mich. Built in the 1970s and host to everything from the Bad Boy Pistons, the Barry Sanders Lions, Elvis and the Pope, the structure is now in disrepair. The roof is in tatters, and the elements are wreaking havoc on the once-domed stadium now exposed to the elements.

In an effort to get while the getting is still good, everything is up for sale.

From memorabilia -- "assorted signage and banners, boxing ring, Pistons scoreboard, flooring base, goal posts, locker rooms and fixtures, etc...," the auction website explains -- to run-of-the-mill miscellaneous items -- "mop buckets, fire extinguishers, wheel chair ramps, etc..."

"Every item starts at five dollars. If we don't get that, it goes in the garbage," Jim Passeno of RJM Auctions, which is handling the online auction, told the Associated Press.

Passeno hasn't said what Triple Investment Group LLC, which acquired the Silverdome for just over a half-million dollars in 2009, plans to do with the stadium after the auction.

In the meantime, you can peruse the lists of Silverdome assets and plan your bids accordingly.
