Numbers conjure up vivid memories in sports. If you say "3" most sports fans would think of Babe Ruth; Green Bay Packer fans would remember Tony Canadeo. If you say "75" most football fans would think of Mean Joe Green, but Packer fans would recall Forrest Gregg. This unique book features 99 chapters one keyed to each uniform number. The history of each number provides a different slice of Packer history, representing a thematic rather than chronological approach to Green Bay's rich heritage. There is no other book like this that reviews a team history by its uniform numbers. A refreshing take on a most popular team!
