Tulsa's Rose Bowl for sale on eBay

Updated:
You can find just about anything on eBay. Clothes, furniture and Route 66 landmarks. Now, you can even find Tulsa's beloved Rose Bowl building up for bid online.

If you've got half-a-million bucks lying around, News on 6 business reporter Steve Berg says you can own a piece of history.

The next item up for bid, one used, slightly scorched, bowling alley. Can't be used for a bowling alley anymore as part of a deal with the previous owners, but 34,000 square feet of a very unique, very famous local landmark.

So what do you think? "Selling it on eBay you mean? Why not, they do everything else on the Internet." Dennis Park, who has a business nearby, says he used to play in a company bowling league there years ago. So far though, zero bidders. "I can't imagine anybody buying it on eBay, but there'll be a lot of lookers I guess."

So would he be in the market himself? "Half a million." Steve Berg: "Actually, $499,000." Dennis Park: “keep it under that $500,000 I guess. I dunno, good luck to him."

"We'd go over there and bowl and I'd take my sons and my stepkids and we'd go over there and bowl and it was a pretty nice little place to go until they sold it." Bill Umbell's car shop is right across the street from the Rose Bowl. He'd like to see somebody make use of it. "I hope that whoever does, its going to be good for 11th street, because like I say, right now 11th street needs help right now."

Dennis Park: “I thought it had been resolved. I thought whoever bought that thing was going to use it themselves."

The owner says he's just trying to gauge the interest in the building. He says if he found the right buyer, he'd sell, but he might still try to develop it himself. And he says he's still wants to avoid tearing it down.
