Product Details

Berkeley artisan Ron Trumble brings his lifetime of woodworking skills to this bench collection created for fans of the Cal Bears.  Using Japanese joinery techniques, he attaches elegant yet sturdy legs to sections of reclaimed Cal Memorial bench seating.  We offer this style in a length of 56"  (also available in a 37" "mudroom" style, please call if interested).  For a super sturdy option, we have one last Dijon 70" 4 seater with the original stanchions from the stadium as the legs.  Each bench is subtly engraved with "Made of Seat From California Memorial Stadium". The wood used to craft these benches was in use at Cal Memorial Stadium from 1923 to 2010.

Note the faded original iconic blue & dijon paint and the weathered surface from which Cal fans cheered the Bears throughout the years and the seat numbers are still visible.

When renovation on the Stadium began in 2010, Cal Athletics officially licensed Tokens & Icons to offer gift items and furniture from the historic venue's benches. As much of the wood was painted long ago with lead based paint, Tokens & Icons carefully hand-selected and is working solely with the more recent lead-free painted benches. Tokens & Icons hand-picked and transported bench wood and stanchions previous to the renovation of California Memorial Stadium.

California Memorial Stadium Artifacts

Cal Memorial Stadium Renovation

From the time California Memorial Stadium opened in 1923, Golden Bear fans faithfully cheered from blue and gold seats for 88 seasons, creating scores of unforgettable memories for generations of football fans. In 2009 & 2010 Cal Memorial was renovated & Cal Athletics officially licensed Tokens & Icons to offer gift items and selected us to be an official partner for accessories & furniture from the historic venue's benches. We hand-picked and transferred the bench wood to our warehouse facility in Berkeley, California.

In addition to the Cal Memorial wood items, Tokens also works with Cal game used uniforms, footballs and helmets. Several paths to elicit a "where on earth did you get that?" from the Bears fan in your life.
