Packers v. Cardinals, way back when

Do know wear, if it is possible at all, that you could buy a 1924 Packers Jersey? My grandfather played on that team and I'd love to buy one each for my dad, brother, and myself.

I don't know of any company which makes them, unfortunately. But you might try HR Derby - you may be able to custom-order one through them.

If you don't mind, I'd love to talk to you about your grandfather's experiences - stories from the period are rare beyond measure.
