WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- A piece of Packers history is up for grabs for a pretty hefty price tag.

It’s a sweater worn by Packers head coach Vince Lombardi during the 1965 season. It’s being offered for $175,000. Vince Lombardi's name is stitched in the collar and coach's “#1” is stitched in the front of the jersey.
