Inc. announced that the City of

has selected its wholly-owned memorabilia division, Dreams Products Inc. (Mounted
Memories) as its asset recovery firm prior to the demolition of the Orange
Bowl. The arrangement gives Mounted Memories access to virtually everything in
and around the Orange Bowl, including the goal posts, lockers, seats, benches,
urinals, – even trees. Many of these items will be professionally preserved and
are anticipated to be available for sale to the public as soon as January 2.

“We are
thrilled to work with the City of

something special – more than just simply sell off the assets,” said Ross
Tannenbaum, president of Dreams, Inc. “Our goal is to make the memories of one
of Miami’s iconic structures continue on into the future, and to offer sports
fans nationwide a chance to maintain their own memories of the Orange Bowl.”

As a
highlight to the closing days of the Orange Bowl, Mounted Memories is planning
a full day of farewell festivities honoring football greats and culminating
with a flag football game, pitting the legendary Miami Dolphins lead by Dan Marino
against the great


Miami Hurricanes of
the past lead by Jim Kelley and Bernie Kosar. Scheduled for Saturday, January 26th,
the game will be a nostalgic reminder of the amazing athletic feats that have
taken place in this renowned stadium.

“After an
evaluation committee of professionals gave careful consideration to proposals,
they determined that Mounted Memories is the most qualified organization to
handle the end of an era with the tribute that the Orange Bowl deserves,” said
City Manager Pete Hernandez. “Now city residents, sports fans and history buffs
will all have an opportunity to own a piece of

Miami’s history.”

to Mitch Adelstein, president of Mounted Memories, the rich tradition of the
Orange Bowl needed to be upheld. “We didn’t want to see the entire 70-year
history of one of sports most recognizable names simply sold off at the
proverbial court house steps,” he said. “Our goal is to integrate the athletes
with associations to the Orange Bowl into the preservation of its fundamental

company plans to create unique memorabilia, mounted, framed, plaqued and
otherwise presented in an extraordinary manner. From its Sunrise-based
warehouse, Mounted Memories has extensive experience in creating one-of-a-kind
collectibles. Memorabilia that may be available are autographed seats, sections
of the locker rooms, signage from the exterior and much more.

building, first named Burdine Stadium, was completed in 1937, playing host to
the Miami Hurricanes. The Orange Bowl name came 20 years later, as a tribute to
the Orange Bowl Classic that was played there every year till the mid-90s. The
Orange Bowl has hosted five Super Bowls (II, III, V, X, and XII) and numerous other
events including superstar concerts by Madonna, the Eagles and Prince’s Purple
Rain Tour. It was the backdrop to the Dolphins 1972 perfect season as well as
the home stadium to the five-time national champion Miami Hurricanes. The
movies “Black Sunday” and “Any Given Sunday” used extensive footage of the
Orange Bowl.

“We are
sorry to see the Orange Bowl leave its hallowed ground, but we are glad to be
able to keep its history alive,” said Tannenbaum.
