Presented is a vintage Green Bay Packers felt pennant from 1967. The pennant is composed of green felt, with yellow printed lettering, and a yellow felt headband, stitched on in a running stitch. The pennant has yellow block lettering that reads “Green Bay Packers” and an illustration of quarterback Bart Starr throwing a football at left. The pennant would have been used by fans to celebrate the team during games and Super Bowl run.
The Green Bay Packers are an American professional football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. One of the most-storied franchises in the history of the sport, the Packers have won the most championships, 13 in total, of any National Football League team. The team’s most successful period was in the 1960s, under the legendary coach Vince Lombardi, who had been hired in 1959. Lombardi’s Packers teams in the 1960s were stocked with talent, boasting future Hall of Fame players on offense and defense. The team thrived with quarterback Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Paul Hornung, Forrest Gregg, Ray Nitschke, Willie Davis, Henry Jordan, Herb Adderley, and Willie Wood.
The Green Bay Packers won championships in 1961 and 1962 and followed with three straight championships starting in the 1965–66 season. On January 15, 1967, in the inaugural Super Bowl, the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35–10. They successfully defended their Super Bowl title the following year against the Oakland Raiders, winning 33–14.
Very good condition. Pennant printed lettering is intact and color is still vibrant. Green felt color has not faded, with no loss to the body of the pennant. Small loss to yellow headband at the top.
Pennant is archivally mounted and framed in a custom-built black wooden frame. Framed dimensions: 17" H x 35" W x 2" D.
