The Pontiac Silverdome hosted the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, the Who, the Pope, Wrestlemania, a Super Bowl, and of course, the Detroit Pistons and the Detroit Lions. Largely unused since the Lions moved back to downtown Detroit, the Silverdome was sold in 2009 to the Triple Investment Group for about a half-million dollars. Now its assets are going up for auction. The auction will carry many items of interest to sports fans and the business community alike. Current State’s Scott Pohl speaks with Rick Montgomery, owner of RJM Auctioneers, about the responsibilities that come with auctioning off such a landmark. Montgomery says this is one of the biggest projects RJM has ever worked on, with an item count upwards of 4000.

Scott Pohl is a general assignment news reporter and produces news features and interviews. He is also an alternate local host on NPR's "Morning Edition."
