    1966 Max McGee's Personal World Champion Green Bay Packers Silver Tea Set - Super Bowl I Season! The year 1966 was, without question, one of Max McGee and the Green Bay Packers' most noteworthy seasons. During training camp of that special season, countless number of football experts predicted that the "Green and Gold" would win the World Championship, again under the legendary head coach Vince Lombardi. But the Dallas Cowboys had other ideas. The Cotton Bowl was the site of the 1966 NFL Championship game, and it took every bit of Green Bay's effort, and a late game-saving interception of the Cowboys' Don Meredith by the Packers' Tom Brown to clinch the game, propelling the team into the first Super Bowl. Unquestionably, nobody expected the Packers to fall to the Kansas City Chiefs in the first "Big Game," but with those lofty expectations came heavy pressure for Lombardi and his players. Nevertheless, the Packers prevailed in the first AFC/NFC showdown, behind an amazing performance by unsung hero Max McGee, who caught the first touchdown in Super Bowl history, and a tally of seven receptions for 138 yards.

    From that memorable season, we present a complete silver-plated tea set that was originally belonged to the beloved Max McGee. According to multiple sources, coach Vince Lombardi awarded the set to player's families as a token of his appreciation for the hard work his team displayed that monumental season. Presented to the great wide receiver after the dust settled from the successful year, this "Viners of Sheffield" collection has "World Champions 1966 Green Bay Packers" beautifully engraved at the 13.5x21" tray's center. Each piece has the proper markings on the bases, with "Made in England" on each. The typical tarnishing is exhibited throughout, which can easily be polished for maximum displayability. One of very few similar examples ever offered at auction, we are proud to offer this unique championship presentation.
