SHELL LAKE, WI (WTAQ) - Scratch Brad Suave’s name off the most renowned list in sports. 

After 37-years of waiting, he’s now a Packers season ticket holder. 

He was nearly 20-years old back in August of 1976 when he put his name down on a whim while on a trip to Lambeau Field. 

Even then, he knew the list was long but knew you could will them to your family. 

Suave says he never forget and watched his number move up through the years of Packers triumph and losing seasons. 

Last year, he was number 15, and knew it was getting close. 

Suave got a letter this month.  A letter he almost tossed because it looked like a solicitation.  It was in fact a letter from the District User Fee in Green Bay, WI. 

Suave had to pay a one-time user fee of $4,200 plus the cost of the seven tickets, which is more than $2,000. 

The Shell Lake man lives four hours away, but couldn’t be happier with the seats.  Section 128, Row 41.  

The renowned Packers Season Ticket list has around 105,000 people’s name it.

Next on the list for Suave, become a team owner.
