Almost 50 Years Ago...

Just a few days shy of 50 years ago, the Packers were also preparing to play the San Francisco 49ers, as they are tomorrow. Here are a few scans from that game program at City Stadium (Lambeau Field). The game programs today are $6, which is a tiny price increase compared to the price increase for tickets in that same time frame.

Halftime entertainment was provided by the Hamm’s Indians Drum and Bugle Corps from St. Paul, Minn. These days, they'd probably have to remove the offensive attire. 

The Week 4 NFL TV Map for the FOX late game has been updated slightly. RED areas are where the Packers vs. 49ers game will be televised at 3:25 p.m. (CT).
