DE PERE, Wis. (WLUK) -- Former Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy's much-anticipated garage sale has opened -- and closed, all in one day.

The sale was originally scheduled to run for two days, but shoppers who lined up for blocks cleared out the inventory in less than four hours.

Fans weren't surprised by the masses that came out.

"Not really, Packers fans turn out for their players and I'm not surprised at all that this many people want to come out and see what Eddie was selling form his home," said Kevin Nett of Fond du Lac.

"I got up at 9:30, checked my phone. I saw on Twitter that Eddie tweeted his address so I immediately just came over here so I just came here right away and got to the front of the line," Brent Rabas of Denamrk said.

Fans walked away from the sale with Packers hats, shirts and even game-worn cleats.

"To say it was used in a game at Lambeau or some other stadium, it's a one of a kind thing," Nett said.

There were some unusual items available, too.

Lacy held the sale at his former home at the corner of Ridgeway Drive and Trempeleau Street in De Pere.

The sale was postponed last month after a series of flight cancellations.

All proceeds will go to charity, Lacy says.

Lacy spent the past four seasons in Green Bay, appearing in 51 games. In March, the free agent signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
