I’ve known a few people over the years who have sneakily left big events or major tourist attractions with very odd souvenirs…but this one takes the cake!
An Eagles fan made off with a SEAT from U.S. Bank stadium Sunday night after Philly defeated the New England Patriots in the 52nd edition of the big game.

The Saint Paul “Pioneer Press” reports the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority is investigating the theft after evidence was posted that a chair was missing from U.S. Bank Stadium.
The sports authority said by email, “We are aware of the video of a fan leaving the stadium with a stadium seat and our security team is investigating.” A photo posted on Reddit shows one missing seat and two others without seat backs.
Barstool Sports tweeted what appears to be a Philadelphia Eagles fan walking off with a stadium seat under a coat:

According to the Star Tribune, the fan has agreed to pay for the replacement seat, which will cost him $125.
125 bucks for the coolest souvenir in big game history? This guy caught quite the break!
