Deadstock Wigwam Award Sweater

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281130733154
This vintage sweater was made by the Wigwam Hand Knit Hosiery Company of Sheboygan, Wisconsin for Marvin Goetsch. It has his name chain-stitched on a felt patch under the hem. Despite this, it is still neatly folded in the original store box, and appears to have never been worn. The sweater is a rich blue wool.
