The Holy Grail — Part I

For those of you collectors of Packers’ memorabilia out there in Packerville, U.S.A., you know that one of the rarest and most valuable finds is the 1960 Green Bay Packers Yearbook. That is mainly because it was the first issue ever, and a lower quantity was printed since they wanted to see how well it would sell. They are very rare, and the average price you might see one in an online auction could be upwards to $650 or more. But, luckily for you, we’re going to share the entire issue (with the great old ads included) over the next several days here on the blog. So, sit back and enjoy reading about your team as they were preparing to play the 1960 season, the second season with Vince Lombardi in charge as coach and manager.

Tomorrow, Part II.
