Packers Pro Shop has some odd clearance prices on former Packers’ jerseys

The steep discount on a fan favorite’s merch seems surprising at first glance. Selling merchandise featuring former players at clearance prices is a time-honored tradition for sports teams.

But sometimes, the supply of these items dictates that strange things happen with the way they’re priced, and we are seeing that at the Packers Pro Shop right now. Two wide receivers from...
