The prospect of a 50 year old sweater isn’t very appealing to most people. However, when it’s a Vince Lombardi shirt that was purchased¬†for just $0.58, it’s a bit more of a story. And when that Vince Lombardi shirt is worth $20,000, it’s even more of a story. So let’s tell the story:

A couple from Tennessee were thrift store shopping in North Carolina when they came across a very handsome West Point sweater. Seeing as how they were vintage clothing resellers, they saw the opportunity to sell the sweater and turn a handsome profit through resale. However, they had no idea that it would be an iconic piece of clothing that had the NFL coach’s name written in it, no less.
