Aaron Rodgers draft jacket found at Goodwill, now in auction


The San Francisco 49ers changed their mind days before the 2005 draft and choose Alex Smith with the first overall pick. That decision sent the draft stock of Aaron Rodgers into a free fall where he was finally selected with the 24th pick by Green Bay.

Things worked out well for Rodgers. After serving as the backup to Brett Favre for three years, Rodgers has gone on to win a league MVP, Super Bowl and has been selected to three Pro Bowls.


Despite all those accolades Rodgers has played much of his career with a chip seemingly on his shoulder. Part of that is because of his fall on draft day and now one can own the jacket that Rodgers wore that day.

Of course maybe Rodgers was just upset that he was a first round pick and they could not even spell his name right on his jacket?

After being found at a Green Bay Goodwill the jacket that Rodgers wore that day has been entered into an auction from Heritage Auctions.

Currently the jacket is up to $3,500 which could buy just about everything in a Goodwill store.
