PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - An auction featuring more than 3,000 leftover items in the Pontiac Silverdome has collected about $500,000.

RJM Auctioneers facilities manager Jim Passeno tells The Detroit News that he considers the nine-day event that ended Thursday a success and "had a huge response nationwide."

Items up for sale included end-zone turf, pretzel warmers, a boxing ring, a soccer field, flat-screen televisions and scoreboards. The stadium's copper wiring sold for more than $77,000.

The Silverdome is the former home of the NFL's Detroit Lions and the NBA's Detroit Pistons. The 80,000-seat venue north of Detroit has fallen into disrepair.

Triple Investment Properties bought the Silverdome in 2009 for $583,000 in 2009. The company has not said what its plans are for the stadium.
