The Kingdome (Seattle Mariners) Souvenir / Gift Baseball

Beautiful, highly detailed artwork printed on an actual baseball! Wonderful Kingdome images in great detail!

This printed baseball has a detailed painting of Kingdome printed on it. One panel of the baseball has inside field view of the stadium, including stadium seats and the 23' high wall in right ("Walla Walla") painted in full detail. Other panel of baseball has view of outside stadium where the name Kingdome is located, exactly as it is shown on the real building.

Includes a handsome protective, clear lucite display cube.
 
Home to the Seattle Mariners, Seahawks (NFL), and SuperSonics (NBA), the Kingdome was a true multipurpose stadium. It hosted the NFL Pro Bowl, the All Star Game, the NBA All Star Game, and the NCAA Final Four three times. Constructed when Seattle was granted a major league baseball expansion franchise (the Pilots) in 1967, construction finally started in 1972 and lasted nearly four years. As a baseball venue, the park featured huge foul territory (like many multipurpose stadiums), which resulted in seats quite far from the field. Some in the upper deck were as far as 617 feet from home plate. At one time the team covered seats in the upper deck to make the stadium seem less empty. Partly due to the enormous dimensions, the Mariners did not sell out a single game until 1990, when Ken Griffey and Ken Griffey, Jr. took the filed together — the first father-son tandem to play in the big leagues together. However, when the Mariners began fielding competitive teams, the dome's acoustics led to incredibly loud fan noise and provided a big advantage to the home team. This was perhaps even more so for the other sports. In 1994, part of the ceiling collapsed while the Mariners were readying for a game; the team was forced to play the remaining portion of their home schedule (20 games) on the road.
 
The stadium has witnessed a number of baseball moments, including the 1979 All Star Game and Gaylord Perry's 300th win.


Unforgettaball! baseballs represent the finest collection of art work printed on baseballs in the world. These beautiful decorative baseball designs, begun as paintings by Emily M. Wolfson, make a treasured collectible gift for men, women, and children of all ages. They’re perfect as truly unique gifts for everyone from the parents of that special newborn, to children and teens looking for something to brighten their surroundings, to the man or woman looking for the perfect addition to the corporate desktop.
