Young Sports Photographer

We’re changing publications today with a look at the classic Boy Scouts monthly magazine Boys’ Life. This September 1969 issue has an article about John Biever, the son of veteran Packers’ photographer Vernon Biever. Vernon just left us this past year.

The story begins here with a shot of Green Bay RB Donny Anderson being tackled by a Philadelphia Eagles player in Lambeau Field.

More examples of John’s work at the time.

The article concludes with two pages of text above and below.

There are some other football-related pages in the September issue, at the start of the 1969 season. We’ll show you a few. We haven’t seen this offer for Rawlings’ N.F.L. team balls before.

Wilson has their ad, too. But their balls don’t feature your favorite team’s logo.

You might want to sign up for the Punt, Pass, and Kick competition for ’69.

Check out the cool Packers’ bike hubcap in the upper left of this page’s plethora of ads.

Lastly, be sure to get your football equipment at your local Sears store.
