CHARLOTTE, N.C. – A die hard Panthers fan recently stumbled upon some pretty valuable team information and property, and what he did with it may surprise people.

Matt Rowell, 26, dug around at a yard sale recently and found a Carolina Panthers Super Bowl playbook in bags headed for the trash.

Rowell immediately recognized the Super Bowl playbook from the writing saying “2004 Panthers-Patriots," along with other sensitive financial information from a list of star players.

Among the items he found at the yard sale was also lineman Kris Jenkins' size 16 cleats. He showed his friends the Super Bowl playbook before calling the Panthers so he could return the playbook and the financial documents.

"I enjoyed it for a week. I was like, you know what, this really belongs more to the fans than it does to me or for me selling it, because if I were to sell it on Craigslist or eBay or wherever, then that person may then sell it to the Falcons or to the Saints," Rowell said. "It's just stuff that you can't, as a die hard fan you just can't do that."

Matt did get to keep a few things, including the nameplate that adorned Jenkins’ locker at the 2004 Super Bowl. He also still has the Pro Bowl playbooks he found.

Rowell says he's already planning on a Panthers playoff trip in the upcoming season.

what good would a superbowl playbook be to another team 9 years after the fact?

if there is a designed play for Kasay to kick the ball out of bounds, I say burn it.

Well, it would be beneficial to a team in the AFC West. Fox still uses the same playbook.

I guess it's nice of the guy to return it, but me? I would have kept the damn thing. Way too cool to own a piece of history like that, especially for a young franchise such as the Panthers.

Ahaha don't know if you were going for a laugh here but you got one.


I'm sure the playbook isn't that complicated. It's probably as follows:

1. Cover Page
2. Up the middle
3. Up the middle (flipped)
4. 3rd and long draw
5. Punt

Well, the financial stuff should definitely be returned. The playbook isn't that big of a deal.

If this guy is really such a "diehard fan" why the hell would he have sold it on ebay?..I would frame that thing and hang it on my wall...

This is a pretty cool story. Who knew items like this would end up at a yard sale? This guy is actually a friend of a friend, so it goes to show us that it could have been any one of us that stumbled across this. Question is, how many of us die hard fans would have turned it in? I probably would have eventually.
