Revisiting the idea of preserving Pauley's history through sale of old seats, floor

Back in mid February there was a cool discussion up in the fanpost section with the idea on selling physical seats from Old Pauley to "preserve" its history. The original idea leading to great give and take generating ideas such as selling pieces of the floor.

Not sure if Morgan Center was paying attention but some other Bruin alum might have taken note. A UCLA alum is auctioning off the original round center section of Pauley's court:

Since it was replaced in 1982, the jump circle has been in storage. In 1998, it was signed by former UCLA coach John Wooden and some of his greatest players, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Walton, Sidney Wicks and Walt Hazzard.

SCP Auctions says the jump circle is being auctioned by a UCLA alum who wishes to remain anonymous. Online bidding runs April 15-30.

The auction company says "a large portion" of the proceeds will be donated to funding medical research.

One could ask why Morgan Center can't jump on a similar intiative like this and sell off old seats and floor like we had discussed in that thread. Does that really require a lot beyond some initiatives, creativity ... and well effort?
