Green Bay Packers Yearbooks
from the (Vince) Lombardi Era (1960-1967). The yearbooks here
are from the team's return to glory under Lombardi. Arriving in 1959, Lombardi led the Packers to their first winning season in eleven years in his first year as coach. From that auspicious start, Lombardi's Packers had nine winning seasons and claimed five NFL championships in the 1960s. Each yearbook contains roughly 80 pages of text and photos.

After ending the 2007 season for Green Bay with pretty much every passing record
in the NFL and a Super Bowl win under his belt, Brett Favre announced his retirement in a tearful press conference
. He later rescinded
his retirement to play for the Jets in 2008. Citing an aging body unable to stand up to the rigors of another season, he retired again
after last season. Despite rumors of moving to the Minnesota, he was still officially retired
as late as July. Well, not anymore
He’s back, and playing for the rival Vikings. Needless to say, the move has made him an arch- villain in the town
that built him into a legend. [more inside]
