Description



The appropriate namesake of the coveted Super Bowl trophy, legendary head coach Vince Lombardi is the subject and endorser of this nostalgic display. Framed to dimensions of 13-1/2 x 20” under a green suede matte, an 8x10” black-and-white photo captures the famed mentor bellowing instructions from the sidelines as linebacker Bill Forester looks on. Just below, a check drawn from the Green Bay Packers account is endorsed by both Lombardi (signed “Vincent Lombardi” in blue ballpoint, “8” strength) and former Green Bay Mayor and Packers President Dominic Olejniczak (black ballpoint, “9” strength). Of note is the check’s handwritten date of “12-15-59.” Just two days prior, the Packers defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 36-14 to close the season and ensure Green Bat its first winning season since 1947. In a span of 11 successive non-winning seasons, the Packers endured six different head coaches and bottomed out at a franchise-worst 1-10-1 in 1958. Lombardi arrived in 1959 and immediately righted the ship. Full photo LOA from JSA.
