1966 Green Bay Packers World Champions Team-Signed Football - 1st Super Bowl Champions
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,148
Specially produced Wilson official NFL commemorative football ("The Duke"), signed in both black and green ink by the following forty-five members of the 1966 World Champion Green Bay Packers: Lombardi (head coach), Starr, Hornung, Nitschke, Taylor, Gregg, Wood, Adderly, Jordan, Davis, Thurston, Kramer, McGee, Dowler, Pitts, Weatherwax, Bratkowski, T. Brown, Hart, Crutcher, Chandler, Long, A. Brown, Bowman, Skoronski, Grabowski, Robinson, R. Brown, Vandersea, D. Anderson, B. Anderson, Wright, Gillingham, Mack, Kostelnick, Curry, Jeter, Aldridge, Hathcock, Dale, Schnelker (coach), Bengston (coach), Hanner (coach), Cochrane (coach), and Burns (coach). The black-ink signatures are all boldly scripted, averaging "8/9." The six green-ink signatures (Hornung, T. Brown, Weatherwax, Chandler, Wright, and Robinson) are slightly lighter overall, averaging "6." This is a remarkably complete team ball, missing only Marv Fleming and Lee Roy Caffey. The ball features special stampings reading "Green Bay Packers" and "Worlds-Champs 1965." Despite the use of the 1965 championship commemorative ball, the signatures represented here conclusively denote this as a 1966 Green Bay Packers team ball. The 1966 Packers made history by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10 in Super Bowl I, held on January 15, 1967, thus ushering in a new era in professional football. The ball is very slightly deflated; otherwise it is in Excellent to Mint condition. This is an exceptional high-grade example of one of the most desirable of all Green Bay Packers team-signed balls dating from the club's 1960s dynasty. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $4,000+. SOLD FOR $4,148
