08:26 AM ET 06.04 | This is not your ordinary classifieds listing: an entire used basketball court. The University of Colorado at Boulder is auctioning off its portable, 16-year-old basketball court, hoping to get at least $5,000 -- the minimum bid. The online auction is through Higher Ed Surplus. Since the auction started on Friday, there haven't been any takers for the floor, which also served as a volleyball court. The auction ends June 15. The Robbins "AllStar Plus" portable maple basketball floor is described as in fair to good condition. The floor, purchased in 1996, measures 60-feet-by-112-feet and has been sanded and stripped once. The buyer must remove, load and transport the flooring.

6000+ sq. ft. of hardwood maple for $5K? Yeah, that is a steal. Too bad I'm not wealthy, I could turn my entire backyard, side yards, and front yard into BB courts. And have a little left over for the house.

what is something like this actually worth? 5000$ doesnt seem like alot of money for a court...

Throw in the cheerleaders and ya got a deal, mate.

Did they have to pay for this advertisement or was it just a slow sports day?
