Description:
2005 Aaron Rodgers Draft Day Worn Suit Coat. The luckiest, or unluckiest piece in our auction, depending on your point of view, here we present Aaron Rodgers' famed pinstriped suit coat he wore while in attendance at the 2005 draft. Arguably the biggest story of the 2005 NFL Draft came when the star quarterback out of Cal slipped to the 24th pick despite being widely projected to have been pick No. 1 overall. And to top it all off, the team that picked him, the Green Bay Packers, already had a solid starter in future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, so at the time this blazer had a bitter sweet significance in Rodgers' eyes.

But hard work with the Packers' scout team and off-season training paid off and we all know how this story panned out. Favre retired, unretired, etc. and the gunslinger from Chico, California became the Green and Gold's No. 1 guy in 2008 and he never looked back. A three-time Pro Bowler, champion and MVP of Super Bowl XLV and league MVP in 2011, Rodgers has taken the league and sports memorabilia hobby by storm, and he is currently one of the most popular players in the NFL.

The story of how our consignor obtained the suit is amazing in its own right. During a trip to the "Goodwill" store on West Mason St. in Green Bay, he stumbled across the highly-recognizable piece and took it off the rack for closer inspection. It looked to be approximately the proper size for an NFL quarterback and sure enough, the interior pocket tag read: "Aaron Rogers (sic) 4/18/05". In addition, there is also a tag for "Elevee Custom Clothing" of Van Nuys, California, the company responsible for tailoring suits for Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald, Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant and many others. A terrific conversation piece that the winning bidder will possibly be able to sell back to Rodgers someday, as he will undoubtedly need another nice suit coat to accept a future MVP award as head man in Titletown.
