I know this is only semi-related, thought worth sharing. Any event that involves a lot of people and money, items are often sold to collectors. Like in nascar, the cars are usually only used for one race. So parts of the frames are cut and sold. Same goes for concert stages & convention paraphernalia. Movie buffs will collect cardboard displays. People just like owning a "piece of history".

I agree. People collect all kinds of oddities. In fact, I just wasn't sure where to put this one, so I put it in weirdhistory ... but there really isn't anything usual about the practice.
