Vince Lombardi — A Football Legend (1975)

This youth-oriented book (seen above without the dust cover, which is long-gone) is “a brief biography of the football coach who turned Wisconsin's Green Bay Packers into a virtually unbeatable team.” If you’d like to teach your son or daughter about the Packers’ legendary head coach, Vince Lombardi — A Football Legend might be a good place to start. 

The inside front and back covers feature this informational football field artwork. 

Introductory title page. 

An example of the “look” of this kids’ book. 

The illustrations are by Herman Vestal. 

There are also several photographs included, such as this shot from the Oneida Street practice field that is still in use during the football season today, although not for Training Camp.
