Thrift Shopper Unwittingly Buys $20,000 Vince Lombardi Sweater

  • Written by  Fresno Estate Sales

A tattered vintage sweater from West Point bought at a Goodwill outlet store for fifty-eight cents could fetch more than $20,000 at auction.

The sweater belonged to legendary football coach Vince Lombardi, who had served as an assistant coach at the school just before landing his role with the champion Green Bay Packers.

Sean McEvoy, who purchased the sweater in North Carolina, later saw a TV documentary about Lombardi and saw a photo of the coach wearing the same sweater. He told his wife and she remembered seeing a tag inside with a name written in ink: Lombardi, the name now honored every year when the Super Bowl victor hoists “Lombardi Trophy.”
