Turf Still Available

Post by TheWoodshed » April 27th, 2021, 9:01 am

Those of you that have been on the board for a while may remember that I had some pieces of blue Merlin Olsen Field turf that I was selling. This was back in 2012 when the new turf was installed and I procured a bunch of extra pieces that were leftover.

Anyway, I just finished my basement and, as I sorted through the accumulation of stuff, remembered that I still have a bunch of the turf left over. Unfortunately, I didn't have quite enough to use as carpeting for the basement, so my wife has given me the mandate to clear it out (apparently 9 years is too long to sit with a huge box of turf in our basement).

I have quite a bit of it left (some smaller welcome mat-sized pieces, and some larger area rug-sized pieces). Send me a PM if you're interested in some. I think I was asking $10 per sq. ft last time, so let's stick with that. Here's what it looks like:

Is this the "wrong" blue turf?

No. When they installed the new field the endzones were originally solid blue and they had to cut out the wording and logos to inlay them. This is the scraps from the new field install. I've been using a large piece as a welcome mat ever since.

ProvoAggie is correct. This is the exact same blue turf that is currently in the end zones and midfield logo.

That is a very tiny welcome mat! :-)

Just got mine! Really cool to own a piece of Merlin Olsen Field. Gonna look great next to my U-State helmet and Kyler Fackrell's game-worn gloves. Thanks Woodshed!

The OP just delivered my piece to me. It's going to be a great addition to the '78 household: my wife wants to use part of my piece for a welcome mat coming into the walkout basement! She's redecorating with navy ... yes, I married well.


You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I have some green from the current field if anybody wants a chunk.
