Superb use shown in this trademark Houndstooth Hat worn by Alabama Crimson Tide coaching legend Paul "Bear" Bryant. We've seen a few of these in recent years but this may be the most well broken-in, with wear shown both outside and on the band inside, and label indicating "The Original Paul 'Bear' Bryant" hat has loose threads and is slightly detached. A great story comes with this item as well, as our consignor purchased Bryant's 1972 Cadillac (with documentation included) and while performing restoration, found this hat and a Crimson Tide baseball hat of Bryant's, which is available elsewhere in this auction. In an elite group of all-time greatest coaches, Bear won six National Championships and 14 SEC Conference titles while patrolling the sidelines for Alabama.
