GREEN BAY - A thrift store shopper stumbled upon quite a find at a Green Bay Goodwill store: Aaron Rodgers' draft day suit coat from 2005.
The suit coat is up for auction on Heritage Auctions' website.
About a year ago, Ryne Spreda went to Goodwill on West Mason Street looking for job interview clothes. What he found looked like part of the suit Rodgers wore when he landed his job with the Packers.
"I just looked up videos and a picture of him and sure enough he was wearing the same suit coat. The buttons and pockets matched and everything," said Spreda.
Elevee Custom Clothing of Van Nuys, Calif., made the suit coat. Elevee Custom Clothing is known to tailor suits for famous athletes, including Rodgers. The Packers quarterback is modeling a suit on the company's website.
Spreda was also tipped off when he saw a tag in the suit's pocket.
"The name in the pocket is spelled wrong, so I could see how someone could pass it up easily and say it's just a suit coat," said Spreda.
The tag on the suit says "Aaron Rogers, 4/18/05."
The clues were there; enough for Heritage Auctions to put it up for bid on its web site. But no one knew for sure until Friday, right after the Packers quarterback signed the richest contract in NFL history.
"That actually is my suit," said Rodgers.
"That's pretty awesome," said Spreda upon hearing Rodgers confirmed it was his suit coat. "That's really awesome. I figured he would. At first I was just in disbelief, there is no way this is his but looking at it for so long, I'm like it just dawned on me, it's definitely his, it's got to be."
So how much did Spreda pay Goodwill for the suit?
"It was double digits," said Spreda. "It was $13, how much it was."
The highest bidder for the suit coat is currently $2,100.
