On a personal level Vince Lombardi Jr. has wonderful memories of the five years his father spent as an assistant football coach at the service academy before going on to become an assistant coach with the New York Giants and then to the Green Bay Packers as head coach.

The sweater in question was purchased for 58 cents by Sean and Rikki McEvoy of Knoxville at the Goodwill Outlet on Patton Avenue last summer.
