    1959-60 Green Bay Packers Team Signed Football. The smallest city of professional football did achieve early success in the franchise's history under the leadership of team founder/coach/player Curly Lambeau, but the decade of the 1950's was one that the folks of Titletown would rather forget. Coming off a dismal 1-10-1 1958 season under the tutelage of head coach Scooter McLean, the Green Bay Packers were basically the joke of the league. That was until 1959 when the team hired a feisty little Italian by the name of Vince Lombardi. In just his first season with the Packers, Lombardi instilled a winning mindset to his team, and transformed his squad from its losing ways of the previous season, to a formidable record of 7-5-0 in 1959. Offered here is a rare chance to obtain a team-signed football representing the first two seasons of Lombardi's head coaching career. Signed in extremely solid ball-point ink on a lightly worn "The Duke" Wilson football, the following signatures are presented: Vince Lombardi, Tom Moore, Max McGee, Norm Masters, John Miller, Ray Nitschke, Jerry Kramer, Paul Winslow, Hank Gremminger, Bob Skoronski, Dan Currie, Gary Knafelc, Boyd Dowler, Ron Kramer, Willie Wood, Bart Starr, Dave Hanner, Jim Ringo, Willie Davis, Henry Jordan, Jim Taylor, Forrest Gregg, Phil Bengston, Paul Hornung, Fuzzy Thurston and others. Even collectors who already own a team-signed Packers pigskin from the 1960's will want to get in on the action for this early-career Lombardi exemplar. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
