Andy Reid spent 14 years as the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, leading the team to numerous division titles and one Super Bowl appearance. He was fired by the team earlier this year, however, and now it appears that he’s finally ready to put the past behind him once and for all.
Specifically, he’s selling all his old Eagles gear in a big garage sale. Everything must go.
“We’ve got anything that we wore or collected over the last 14 seasons of Eagles gear,” Tammy told SportsTalk 94 WIP’s Angelo Cataldi in an interview.
Tomorrow, between 9 a.m. and noon at Harriton High School in Rosemont, Pa., Reid’s wife Tammy will oversee the sale of over a decade’s worth of Eagles clothing, memorabilia and other assorted trinkets collected by the couple. Proceeds from the sale will go to a local high school football team and a women’s shelter.
It’s not an auction — it really is a garage sale (minus the garage). Items will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
So… who wants an old, sweaty Eagles polo shirt, size XXXL? Be advised that it has mustard stains from Reid’s post-game meal. Anyone? It’s a collector’s item! When else will you get the chance to buy authentic NFL merchandise straight from one of the game’s most recognizable faces?
If a crusty polo doesn’t float your boat, perhaps the opportunity to meet an NFL player — presumably one of the players still on the Eagles and not one on Reid’s new team, the Kansas City Chiefs — does?
“There might be some more secret players showing up,” Tammy revealed.
Despite how it may look, Andy isn’t trying to completely purge Philadelphia from his memory, Tammy insisted. “Oh my gosh, Philadelphia is etched in our hearts, believe you me. We’re leaving tons of friends and great memories of this city.”
