Green Bay’s Packers — Return to Glory (1973)

Green Bay’s Packers — Return to Glory was published following the team’s 1972 Central Division championship season, which saw them finish 10-4 and advance to the NFC playoffs. The fans thought this could be the revival of the organization to the winning habits of the Lombardi Era, this time under the command of head coach Dan Devine. New Packer heroes came to the forefront — QB Scott Hunter, RBs John Brockington and MacArthur Lane, LB Fred Carr, K Chester Marcol and more. Unfortunately, the championship quest came to an end in Washington with a 16-3 loss. The real “Return to Glory” would have to wait more than 20 years.

In order to not damage the binding of the book, we only have front and back cover scans.
