Packers Beat Raiders!

No, this is not a prediction for Sunday’s game, but a look back at the Milwaukee Sentinel’s coverage of Super Bowl II. These are the pages from the Monday, January 15, 1968 edition, covering the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Oakland Raiders — the last Packers’ game coached by Vince Lombardi. And the last championship for the team until January 1997.

The last page of their coverage is not of the game, but either an earlier example of the team licensing automobile sales, or an example of how you could just use the Packers’ name and logo without fear of legal action.
