My Vince Lombardi Almanac

I don't remember exactly when I received this Packers almanac in honor of Vince Lombardi but I'm sure it came from my Uncle Jim who is also a big Packers fan. It was put out by the Jaycees in 1968 to honor Lombardi's nine season as the most successful coach in NFL history


The magazine has some great photography although I'm pretty sure Vince isn't "reflecting on nine years as Packers coach."


Plus there is this great guide to all the players that played in one or more games  for the Packers during the Lombardi era. I'm sure a lot of these players never had a football card but I think it would be a neat project to get at least one card from as many players listed as possible. I wasn't really looking for a new collecting project but sometimes they find you.
