IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Bricks from the University of Iowa’s Kinnick Stadium have proven to be a popular souvenir for Hawkeye fans when there is construction on the facility.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports Bravo Sports Marketing is selling bricks from the stadium with a commemorative plaque for $99 apiece.

The company acquired about 8,000 bricks from the stadium after a 2004 renovation and sold them all quickly. So Bravo Sports‘ Dave Gallagher says it was natural for the company to bid on 1,200 bricks that were available last summer.

The bricks were all washed with a special detergent, dried and given a special plaque. They all come with a certificate of authenticity from the university. Only about 400 remain available.
