Mowers find Chiefs memorabilia while working along Lee’s Summit highway


LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Transportation is working to find the Kansas City Chiefs fan who unknowingly lost a box of team memorabilia.

A crew mowing along Interstate 470 in Lee’s Summit Wednesday morning came across a box on the side of the highway. A framed, autographed jersey of Hall of Fame Quarterback Len Dawson and a picture of Tony Gonzalez were inside.

“I had no thoughts of keeping it or anything. My thought was, if i’m the owner and it’s something like that and I lose it and somebody found it, it would be awesome for them to give it back,” Crew Leader Brandon Morgason said. “You never know if it was getting passed down from family… I mean I know it has some value to it. So, we’re going to try to do the right thing here.”

The box was picked up and taken to a nearby MoDOT office.

MoDOT said there was an address on the box. They hope to use it to track down the owner of the memorabilia.
