If you recall on Saturday, the Hershey Bears wore special sweaters for their home opener to celebrate their 75th year in existence. After the game, the organization held a special event down at center ice and auctioned off each player’s jersey. The end result? The Bears raised an extraordinary $39,950 for their charities and a few lucky fans got to go home with a personally signed game-used jersey from their favorite player.

Which sweater ended up raising the most cash? The result may shock you.

Enforcer Matt Clackson and his game-used jersey raised the most cash for charity, a staggering $3,500. His sweater went for almost $2,000 more than the next guy’s. Um, what? We’re just going to assume Clackson’s parents were at the game and chalk it up to that.
