Green Bay Packers 1921 game action photos, believed to be the oldest in existence, are being auctioned
Mark Schneider has found several valuable Green Bay Packers items during his lifetime, many of which he proudly put on display when he opened the Glory Days sports pub in downtown La Crosse in 1996. Patrons walking into the green and gold establishment the past 25 years have found themselves in a football shrine.
…“The cool thing about these photos are they show proof of something that nobody, no Packers fan, maybe not even the team, understood until we saw these photos,” said Heritage consignment director Chris Nerat, a Marinette native who graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay in 2001. “And that’s that the Packers sometimes had the Acme Packers font on the backs of their jerseys. We always assumed they wore Acme Packers on the front of the jerseys, but in one of these photos you can see Acme Packers on the back of the jersey.”
