1961 Pre-Championship Rally

Here’s the program from an event we’d not heard about before. Eight days prior to the 1961 N.F.L. championship game between Green Bay and the New York Giants, there was a Saturday afternoon rally at the Brown County Memorial Arena across from the stadium to salute the Packers and their accomplishments in that season. Many awards were given out, and the league’s commissioner, Pete Rozelle, was there as well. Here is the program from that event for your pre-Thanksgiving enjoyment.

I remember this event well. I took two of the booklets when I walked into arena. At the end you could walk around and talk with the players and coaches. I got many autographs that day; including Lombardi, Starr, Taylor, Hornung, Wood, Adderly. What a great time for an 11 year old kid.
