On the Cusp of History

This signed 1929 panoramic photo, from the estate of a former Packers staff member, is currently up for auction. It shows Curly Lambeau and his men in 1929, the team's first World Championship season.

This uniform, with its blue numbers in gold circles, was worn in 1929 and 1930 and was the inspiration for the Packers' 2010-2014 throwback alternates. In this photo, we also have exemplars of two styles of pullover sideline jackets from the period.

The 1929 squad tore through the National Football League, finishing the season with a 12-1-1 record. The only blemishes in the season were a scoreless tie with the Frankford Yellowjackets and a 16-6 loss to the Memphis Tigers in the final game. Oh, heady days. These men are standing on the cusp of history.
On, you Blue and Gold, to glory,
Win this game the same old story,
Fight, you Packers,
Fight, and bring the bacon home to Old Green Bay.
