While fans and teams were scrambling after the Metrodome collapse last December, local entrepreneur, Guy Nelson, was quickly on the phone with his own plan in place…trying to obtain the actual damaged Metrodome Roof.

After 6 months of calls,emails and meetings, Guy Nelson finally obtained a majority interest in the actual authentic Metrodome Roof material. "Much of the roof had to be destroyed by demolition due to safety and logistics, but a great portion of it was still able to be salvaged", says Guy Nelson,a longtime local sports fan. "I just couldn't believe I got my hands on this material…it is pretty exciting to have a such a large piece of Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings history and to be able to share a piece of it with fans across the world now! "This is a keepsake that doesn't come along that often!"

"I also think the best thing about this is that we are able to be 'green'and prevent acres of this material from going into local landfills where it could be for a over a thousand years and now can be cherished in your office, sports room or man cave", says Guy. "I am also wanting to 'give back'and want a generous portion of the proceeds to benefit Make a Wish program. I really believe in Cause Marketing and people will feel good about their purchase as well knowing kids will benefit too. Its just a win-win all around no matter how you look at it….recycling and being 'green', a charity benefits from the success, sports fans can get and cherish a genuine and authentic piece of Metrodome Memory and I can make a living as well!"

The Metrodome is truly a historic part of Minnesota Sports History and absolutely an iconic part of the Minneapolis landscape. Monumental sporting events such as the 1987 World Series, 1991 World Series, 1992 Super Bowl, 1985 All Star Game and many records and milestones such as Cal Ripken's 3,000th hit, Adrian Peterson's single game rushing record, etc happened here. All the best and most famous athletes competed here such as Brett Favre, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders, Emmit Smith, Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Joe Mauer and Pete Rose to name a few.
