First, there were pieces of glass.
Now, you can own a different memento from Joe Louis Arena: a vial of its melted ice.
The Red Wings have announced that fans can purchase limited-edition vials of melted ice that the team skated on during its “Farewell Season at The Joe.”
The melted ice is sealed in a commemorative “Farewell Season at The Joe” vial within an numbered 6” x 8” shadowbox framed photo from the “Farewell to The Joe Ceremony,” which took place after the building’s final game last season. The vials – which can be purchased here – are limited to the first 3,000 purchased and cost $85 per vial.
Proceeds from the vial sales will benefit the Detroit Red Wings Foundation.
