G. Rollie Court Sells in Auction; More Aggie History on Sale

G. Rollie White Coliseum's hidden history underneath its final court has sold for a pretty penny.

The original floor put down in the 1950s was uncovered when the old arena was torn down as part of the Kyle Field redevelopment, and sections of it were put up for auction online.

Five sections ended up selling for a total of $51,850, including an A&M logo that went for more than $20,000.

A sixth section -- the center court circle -- is up for auction until Thursday at 2:00 p.m. through the Aggie Athletics website.

The athletics department is keeping a portion of the court for display in the new sports museum being added at Kyle Field.

Old sections of the stadium have been regularly added for auction, including signage and maps.

Final Sales of Original G. Rollie White Court Sections:
- Complete A&M logo: $20,200
- Texas Aggies baseline: $15,000
- Southwest Conference logo: $9,000
- Incomplete A&M logo: $5,150
- Incomplete NCAA logo: $2,500
