Montreal Forum Seat

There are two varieties; one is wood (in many shades) and the other White Paint (showing White,  Lettering, Grey Arm Paint or Logo). There have been wood pieces observed (in all three cases a Guy Lapointe card) with holes. These are from the bolts in the corners of the seatface. Grey paint comes from overspray of the grey arms (metal) and only comes from the outside edges of the seat.

St. Louis Arena Seat

There is a single variety; Yellow Plastic. I suspect that there might be Yellow Leather as well... but this is unconfirmed.

Seems to be the rarest seat to find, but sereal numer data contradicts this... more info needed!
