FedEx Lost Louisville’s Russ Smith’s National Championship Game Jersey, Guard Is Extremely Upset

Russ Smith’s national championship game jersey is missing, and FedEx is apparently to blame.

The former Louisville shooting guard was presented with the framed jersey on the Cardinal’s senior night. It was getting shipped to Smith’s New York barber shop, but when it arrived, the glass and frame were cracked. So FedEx told Smith to ship it back, jersey included. FedEx has now admitted that the jersey has been lost. 

Smith, of course, is not happy. 

A FedEx spokesman has made a statement on the matter:

“We are working closely with security to further investigate this matter. The damaged merchandise was marked to discard since, for safety precautions, our employees are trained not to open packages with broken glass. We sincerely apologize to Mr. Smith for his recent experience. We are working directly with Mr. Smith on this matter,” the statement said.
