    Early 1960's Elijah Pitts Oversized (6") Green Bay Packers "Idea Promotions" Pinback Button. As most advanced Green Bay Packers will attest, very little is known about team's photograph buttons of the early 1960's. What we do know is that they were produced in extremely limited quantities by the Idea Promotions company of Winona, Minnesota, and they feature most of the Packers greats from the Lombardi years. Is it possible they were pulled off shelves for some reason and destroyed? We will never know. Presented here is the Elijah Pitts example, which is one of only a couple that have ever surfaced. Displaying superb eye appeal, it exhibits minimal wear on the verso.
