    1960's Vince Lombardi Game Worn Green Bay Packers Coach's Cap from The Domenic Gentile Collection. Climb to the top of the professional football mountain top and this is the name you'll find, emblazoned upon the trophy awarded to the Super Bowl victor. It's only proper that such an honor was bestowed upon the man who rechristened the sleepy hamlet of Green Bay as "Titletown," leading the Packers to six NFL Championships in a dozen seasons, inclusive of the first two editions of the Super Bowl.

    More than a half century after that most glorious NFL era, Vince Lombardi's legend has shown no signs of faltering, a fact confirmed by the $43,000 result for a jacket worn during his coaching days at West Point realized in Heritage's February 2015 Platinum Night sale. This is the very first Packers garment we've ever encountered, a heavy satin/rayon blend baseball cap that once contained the sport's greatest brain. We can see the style in numerous photos of Lombardi.

    Never available in retail format, this cap comes to us with a letter of provenance from the son of Domenic Gentile, head trainer of the Packers for many years. It shows exceptional, sweaty wear, bleeding the blue marker that spells "V.L." under the visor and upon the "Wilson" manufacturer's label at interior headband. There are no apparent size markings, but we'd estimate size at about 7 to 7 1/4. A centerpiece item for even the most distinguished of Green Bay uniform collections. Letter of provenance from Gregg Gentile.
