Once providing a venue for the Super Bowl, World Cup, NBA finals and a concert for The Rolling Stones, the Silverdome is now a shell of its former glory. But fans with a lifetime of memories from stadium north of Detroit can purchase the Silverdome's assets in an online auction.

The price of every item starts at $5, but the latest bidding prices are not known because the auction website is down. A spokesman for RJM Auctions said its website host indicates it is a distributed denial of service attack, a form of hacking. The sale was scheduled to run through May 29, but the auction house said it is postponed for approximately three weeks.
