A huge collection of vintage Packers memorabilia is being sold in an auction run by Boston-based RR Auction, according to a news release.

The huge collection features some rare items, including the sterling silver trophy the Packers received after the team went undefeated in 1929, winning their first NFL championship.

The auction also features the brown wool topcoat that Vince Lombardi wore during the Packers 1966 season.

“It’s an incredibly rare, museum-quality piece from the personal wardrobe of a Green Bay icon,” said Bobby Livingston, executive vice president at RR Auction.
