Went by and it was under construction. A very friendly gentleman told us that it had been for months and also explained that it was being refinished. We were amazed to watch one lonely worker HAND SANDING the entire thing. It was still pretty cool looking though. A nice stop if you are heading to or from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It's huge as indicated. Unfortunately, its currently under construction or maintenance. Drove by it today, and it was surrounded by a fence. :( We couldn't get good pictures.

this stamp is not made of rubber. it's a very cool price of art but you can hardly call it the "worlds largest rubber stamp".

It's huge but under construction right now. When not under construction it makes for a good photo opportunity.

Drove by on Friday, Oct 10th 2014 and it is still under construction - fence around it and the 'FREE' stamp was just a plain flat surface. But, still cool to see. It is pretty massive.
