An online auction of a collection of Tiger Stadium memorabilia drew about $193,000, not including seats that are being sold at a fixed price.

The most expensive bid in the auction was $4,025 for a piece of a fence around a light tower hit by Reggie Jackson's home run in the 1971 All-Star game.

The fence piece came with a photo of the stadium and a Jackson baseball card.

Other top-selling items included $2,000 for Al Kaline's locker, $3,800 for a 1968 World Series banner and $900 for the home dugout urinal.

The sale ended yesterday.

Tiger Stadium has been empty since Detroit Tigers owner Mike Ilitch moved the ballclub to Comerica Park in 2000.
