1961 Championship Beer Guy


After a series of photos showing the days and weeks leading up to the 1961 NFL championship, today we switch to photos taken during the contest. It’s New Year’s Eve in Green Bay’s City Stadium, and the caption to this photo reads: “Harold Baker, a vendor at City Stadium, sits on his case of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and watches part of the NFL championship game against the New York Giants on Dec. 31, 1961. A bottle of Pabst went for 35 cents.”
