    1939 Green Bay Packers World Championship Gold Watch Presented to Carl "Bud" Jorgensen. It's amazing how one small moment in time can change a person's life and an team's history forever.

    I first got involved with the (Green Bay Packers) because my dad worked for the railroad and he got me a pass so I could make a trip with the team. Pat Holland was the trainer and equipment man then. He wanted to hang it up, so Curly Lambeau said, 'Why don't you help Pat and learn the ropes so you can step in there? - Carl "Bud" Jorgensen

    And with that minute gesture by the Marinette, Wisconsin native, Jorgensen would put together a legendary career that spanned 47 seasons, is the only employee of the Packers to work for both Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi, and it would eventually land him a spot in the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.

    Presented here is the equipment manager/trainer's 14 karat gold filled watch that he earned after the Packers defeated the New York Giants in the 1939 NFL Championship Game. Exhibiting moderate wear throughout, the head remains in "all-original", working condition, while its leather band serves as a quality replacement.

    Engraved "Bud Jorgensen 'Packers' World Champions 1939," it is one of only a few examples ever offered publicly. A piece that would be suitable for display in the Packer Hall of Fame, it will surely turn the heads of advanced Titletown enthusiasts and discerning collectors alike.
