John Carpentier literally wrote the book on Green Bay Packers collectibles. He’s been buying and selling memorabilia–and stores–for years.
There wasn’t a huge market for Green Bay Packers memorabilia in the early 1990s. Even with a new quarterback named Favre..or was it Farve…the Pack was not yet back.
Still, John Carpentier saw a spark. His timing was perfect. The Packers caught fire and a loyal fan/collector base that was ready to buy and sell did plenty of it in his first store. That was two stores ago.
He’s now on his third–this one stocked not only with vintage Packers memorabilia, but vintage sports material of a completely different nature.
