    Description

    1968 Green Bay Packers Team Signed Football from The Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder Collection. The Packers celebrated their third consecutive NFL title with a chilly win over the Cowboys in the famed Ice Bowl. From there traveled to tropical Miami where they disposed of the AFL champion Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl II. Official NFL "The Duke" autograph model football is stamped "Green Bay Packers...Super Worlds Champs 1967" and signed by forty-seven, including Hall of Famers, Bart Starr, Ray Nitschke, Jerry Kramer, Forrest Gregg, Willie Davis, Willie Wood, Henry Jordan, Dave Robinson, and Herb Adderley. Others include Lionel Aldridge, Elijah Pitts, Boyd Dowler, Bob Brown, Travis Williams, Gale Gillingham, Claudis James, Bob Skoronski, Ron Costelnik, Leroy Caffey, coach Ray Wietecha and head coach Phil Bengston. The signature s vary in strength and grade an overall 7.5/10. The ball itself is deflated, shows minor wear, and presents wonderfully. Letter of provenance from Anthony Snyder. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

    More Information: The Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder Collection

    He was the most famous and charismatic figure in the history of sports gambling, the first nationally-recognized advocate for an industry that had lingered in the shadows of the athletic world since its very beginning. From the world headquarters of wagering, the city of Las Vegas, Jimmy the Greek ruled the sports book as a benevolent king, courting his share of controversy along the way but clearly earning his throne as the sporting world’s most skilled prognosticator.

    So much about the life of The Wizard of Odds feels prescient in the current climate of American sports, from the shifting political tides we see in the NFL and NASCAR to the relocation of the Raiders franchise to a shiny new stadium just off the Las Vegas strip, an unthinkable event back in Snyder’s day. This is the second installment of a personal collection decades in the making, and Heritage Auctions is proud to make it available to the collecting world. Each lot in this collection is consigned by Jimmy the Greek's son, and will be accompanied by his letter of provenance.
