From the days of two-way players, no face masks and archaic padding, the Green Bay Packers secured their fourth NFL title in 1936, marking their first won via a playoff game and the NFL’s first championship played at a neutral site (Polo Grounds). Awarded to tailback George Sauer, Sr. for his efforts in that 21-6 conquest of the Boston Redskins, this Green Bay Packers trophy ball is a scarce heirloom from the storied franchise’s early days. The dimpled cream-colored pigskin lists players, coaches and the starting offensive unit. More on our website.

This decorative relic does not fully inflate, but shows amazing preservation. Specifically, painted identifiers show minimal (if any) flaking. In maroon paint, “WORLDS PRO CHAMPS 1936” appears over “Green Bay Packers,” which is painted in green cursive with black accents. On the next panel, (32) players and coaches are listed in black paint. Included are Hall of Famers Herber, Hinkle, Hutson, Kiesling, McNally and coach Lambeau.

Accompanying is an LOA from the Sauer family.
