Aaron Rodgers' draft day suit coat for sale

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- You have one more day to bid on the suit coat Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers wore the day he was drafted by Green Bay.

The guy who's selling it bought it from a Goodwill store in Green Bay for $13.  The latest online bid is $2,600.

Ryne Spreda bought the coat for a job interview about a year ago and found Rodgers' name from the 2005 NFL draft in a pocket.

"Wasn't really thinking about buying it, but I was looking at it and then after inspecting it, looking through all the pockets, I found his name in there. That's when I though it could be his possibly, so I actually left it and came back the next day after researching it all night and it was still there. I was pretty nervous, I kept looking around, I hope no one knows this is here besides me because I thought I was the only one that knew. I can't imagine how many people walked by that department to see it there and just walked right past it, I can't imagine."

Spreda has had the suit coat authenticated by Rodgers himself.

The bidding ends Friday night and Ryne says he'll use the money to help pay for his school, to help his girlfriend buy a car and give some back to the goodwill store where he hit the jackpot in the first place.
