Description

Green Bay- a town tucked into the northern region of the Midwest, would be nothing more than a forgotten detail on the map if not for the Green Bay Packers. In 1967, the Packers were in the midst of winning three NFL titles in a row, a feat which had never been accomplished. Vince Lombardi’s Packers were aging, but still had enough left in their reserves for one last title run. The team from “Titletown” struggled through the regular schedule, but still managed to finish the season, 9-4-1. A win over the Rams set up a meeting with the Dallas Cowboys for the NFL championship. A year earlier, the Packers beat Dallas to pave their route to Super Bowl I. This time, Dallas was the young and hungry team, poised to knock the Packers off their pedestal. On the Saturday before the game, Dallas practiced in 25-degree weather and didn’t believe the temperature would hinder their conquest of the title. However, nobody mentioned the cold front that moved in Saturday night. On game day, the temperature plunged to -13, with a biting negative 46-degree wind chill. Packers cornerback, Willie Wood didn’t think the game would take place. He was wrong. Lombardi thought he had an equalizer for any temperature because he had installed heating coils in Lambeau Field’s turf. The tactic didn’t work that day, and the field was actually worse because a tarp had been put over the field, creating a sheet of ice on the gridiron. The blistering cold was so devastating that the marching band couldn’t play, referee’s whistles wouldn’t work and the metal bleachers were perilous to the touch. Despite the frigid conditions, 50,861 fans put on their long johns and hunting boots to brave the elements. The Packers scored 14 points, and it looked as though the fans would have an early start to their New Years celebration. Dallas came back, however, and took the lead with 17 unanswered points. The Packer dynasty would come down to one drive. Bart Starr was his masterful self and directed the Packers down to the Dallas 2-yard line. Two straight plays netted no yards, and Green Bay was forced to call their final timeout with 13 seconds left. It would be the last play of the game. A dynasty hung in the balance. Starr was going to hand the ball off to fullback, Chuck Mercein, but instead, he kept it. The QB made his way over Jerry Kramer and the Packers won. It would be Lombardi’s final win at Lambeau Field and his second-to-last game with the Packers. There are few pieces of sports memorabilia that experts would be hesitant to evaluate. However, this unused ticket from the Ice Bowl is one of them. Hands-down, this full ticket from the 1967 World Championship game is the finest of its kind in existence. This absolutely crisp, clean ticket has been authenticated and graded PSA NM-MT 8 by the hobby’s leading experts. A similarly graded full ticket from a game of less renown, Super Bowl XII, realized over $11,000 at auction last year. This full, unused ticket, from a game of such memorial import would be a welcomed addition to the exclusive displays of Canton, but is instead offered for the consideration of our subscribers.
