TWO NEW PARTNERS EXPECTED TO JOIN EAGLES' LURIE
Published August 2, 1995
Eagles Owner Jeffrey Lurie is expected to be joined by two "soon-to-be" minority partners, according to S.A. Paolantonio of the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER. The sale of the partnerships to banker Richard Green of Philadelphia and investor Michael Michelson of San Francisco is expected to be completed "before the regular season begins." Paolantonio reports that it is "unclear" how much each man is investing, but Lurie is said to be looking for $5M-$10M from each partner, "depending on whether the league expands the number of partners beyond the current limit of 15." Bill Cosby is also reportedly interested in becoming an investor in the team (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 8/2).
