More on 1962

Mark Schneider of GLORY DAYS Sports Pub in LaCrosse, WI, (and who is becoming a regular contributor to this page), offers some insight into the 1962 Championship watch and the mystery 1962 championship ring:
Chance- none of the players I know ever got 1962 rings and none of the Packers media or photos ever show a 1962 ring. There were 2 different color faces on the watch- black or white. I think Lew Anderson's ring was special order and probably not by the team.
A white-faced version? Sounds interesting.

Packerville, U.S.A.

I'm also very inclined to agree about the 1962 ring. The only one I've ever seen was the one we discussed before, owned by scout Lew Anderson.


A one-off makes sense. It would perhaps indicate that Anderson joined the Packers after the 1961 season (when that ring was given to the players and staff), but I haven't been able to confirm that.

In any case, well done Mark. Thanks again!
