Heads Up, Alabama Fans: Here’s Your Chance to Own Joe Namath’s Famous Fur Coat
Inside the coat is a handwritten message from Broadway Joe that says, "Stay Warm! Joe Namath. Roll Tide."
Start counting those pennies y'all: an icon of sartorial sports history with a decidedly Southern slant is headed for the auction block.
A fur coat belonging to the one-and-only Joe Namath, the NFL Hall of Famer and University of Alabama legend whose flashy fashion sense and glamorous Hollywood lifestyle earned him the nickname "Broadway Joe," is up for auction now through Leland's Sports Memorabilia and Cards.
The coat, made by Henig Furs and retailing for $8,000, was worn by Namath in the famous 2016 Iron Bowl broadcast of the Auburn-Alabama game. In a tribute to retiring Verne Lundquist, a gleeful Namath planted a kiss on the broadcasting legend who exclaimed, "My career is complete!"
