Hard to imagine a simple hat being labeled "iconic" but this Houndstooth hat and Alabama coaching legend Bear Bryant are practically synonymous. Black and white checked hat has size 7 3/8 tag in band, which also has Paul "Bear" Bryant stamped in gold. Inside top has logo indicating The Original Paul Bear Bryant Hat; this one shows minimal use and comes with LOA from photographer Robert Crawford, who patrolled sidelines for over 40 years. Note that the LOA mentions two hats, though only one is offered here. Amazingly, Lelands has not only sold such a memento in the past, but we've done so twice in the past year, with previous winning bids totaling over $100,000. The Crimson Tide has won an incredible 16 National Championships with the most recent coming in 2020; Bryant was the mastermind behind six of those title runs and earned Coach of the Year kudos 12 times.
