Tennessee man purchase’s Vince Lombardi’s West Point coat for .58 cents

You never know what you’ll find at a thrift store, but one Nashville man got the surprise of his life when he bought an old West Point jersey at an Asheville, North Carolina, store:

According to ESPN, Sean McEvoy paid an average of 58 cents per item on his haul that day, but when he watched a Vince Lombardi documentary and saw a picture of the legendary coach wearing a similar jacket, his wife Rikki mentioned she’d seen a name on a patch inside the one they’d bought.

That coat is worth 20,000 dollars today. That is a pretty great purchase….
