The Best Seats in the House
Date: 1940s to 1990s
Younger Celtics fans might not even recognize the kinds of seats used in the old Boston Garden. Wooden and without armrests or padding, these seats saw the Celtics win 16 NBA World Championship titles. Some seats were painted yellow because the NHL Boston Bruins were the original tenants of the Garden – a tradition that lasted until 2019. Others in the stadium section took a coat of orange paint. A historic collection of original seats is on display at TD Garden today.
