Default Photo match a stadium seat?

So while doing a little research for the Comiskey Park two seater I just acquired, I stumbled upon some crazy and yet spooky video of something. I've owned a single aisle seat from Comiskey for a really long time and I've always wondered where it was positioned in the park. The odds of finding out that are next to impossible, but in my case it just might be.........possible?

A three part video on Youtube of one fan's night at Comiskey Park in the final season of 1990 is really cool for any fan of the Sox during that time. I've seen the videos a bunch of times and while watching part three yesterday, I nearly fainted at what I saw. If you jump to 5:10 point of the video, you can see what appears to be the seat in my collection.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIwj2zFtjBI&t=330s

I've included a still shot of the video and a picture of my seat from the same angle. Pretty scary stuff!

If I remember correctly the Sox stopped using the imprinted numbers on the seats at some point and started using the white painted numbers. I think they also painted the section and aisle information on the concrete below the seats. I'm guessing their could be other aisle seats with that combination of numbers, but I doubt it. Everything from the position of the numbers to the paint chip in the top left corner all match up.

Thoughts?

Wow.... quite possible, if not probable! Talk about finding a needle in a haystack.... that might be the find of the century.

More convincing than some of the “photo matched” jerseys I’ve seen lately!

At first I thought no way because there had to be other seat 50s. But then I saw the paint chip in the top right. So i think there is a very good chance its your seat.. That is beyond cool

It's stuff like this that brings joy to our lives. A normal person could care less.
