Packers Tickets — in 1997

If you were a Packers fan eagerly reading all you could get your hands on back in 1996-1997, you may have a few copies of Packer Profiles in your collection (if your wife hasn’t thrown all of that “junk” away). We liked the publication’s mix of then current-day and historic articles, and wish they had put out more issues. We’re going to feature some of the October 1997 issue, starting with this article on the state of the Packers’ season ticket waiting list and more at that time. Mark Wagner, seen above, is still the Packers’ Director of Ticket Operations in 2012.

A color-coded map of Lambeau Field shows the price breaks at that time. Our end zone seats have more than doubled in the last 15 years. 

Here we can see more on how much ticket prices increased over the years. Wagner also states that in 1997, only one Green Bay account turned over in that year, and it wasn’t voluntary. Yes folks, the Packers will take your tickets away for repeated behavioral issues. We enjoy reading the Green Bay police summary of arrests and ejections after home games, knowing that those idiots are helping us inch closer to the top of the list. We gained 101 spots between 2011 and 2012.

The easiest way to see a game at Lambeau then was buying from a broker — and it pretty much remains that way now. 

The Packers’ pretty basic ticket designs for 1997 are seen here. 

 

Here we see how advantageous it would’ve been to put your name on the waiting list when the Packers were a horrible team rather than waiting until they revived in the Holmgren-Wolf era. All the bandwagon-jumpers suddenly decided that they wanted to go to Packers games between 1992 and 1995, when the list more than doubled. Those of us who got on prior to 1985 are much closer to the dream now that the almost 7,000 seats are being added for 2013. Our number right now stands at 2,469. And the high end of the list is over 100,000.
