How did the Green Bay Packers get their name?

The Packers were founded in 1919 by Curley Lambeau and George Calhoun of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Lambeau asked his employer, the Indian Packing Company, for money to buy uniforms. They gave him $500 on the condition that the team be named after the company. Lambeau named the team the 'Packers'.

What does the 'G' stand for on the helmet of the Green Bay Packers?

'G' Is for 'Greatness'Many people think that the "G" stands for "Green Bay" - but it actually stands for "Greatness!" The logo was created in 1961 by Packers equipment manager George "Dad" Braisher.

(See the Related links for a really interesting video on the history of the logo: Tiki Barber interviews various members of the Green Pay Packers themselves.)

I am pulling just a few of the comments from the discussion page (which many may fail to access and read), as it seems that many contributors have a conflict with the original response and therefore should not stand on this page alone. (Personally, I would note that the term "Greatness" would seem to be the wrong variant/tense for what it is suggested it was for: If there is any truth to this story, one would think the term being promoted would have been "Great" or "Greatest".

-- The oval "G" logo which stands for the "G" in Green Bay was created in 1961 by Packers equipment manager Gerald (not George) "Dad" Braisher. Tiki Barber falsely reported it to stand for "greatness" without a reliable source to back up his claims; along with calling him George instead of Gerald. Other reputable media outlets then published similar stories using Barber's false claim as a source. The Packers' Assistant Director of PR and Corporate Communications had the following to say: "There's nothing in our history that suggests there's any truth to this."

-- After George retired in an interview with a local newspaper he was quoted as saying he ordered it as a joke. He wanted his initial on it and thought when he submitted the order to the owner for approval the owner surprised him by approving it. About a day later it dawned on him "G" could also stand for "Green Bay".

Autographs

What is the value of a 1966 Green Bay Packers team autographed football?

Footballs featuring the genuine autographs of the 60's-era Packers are highly sought by collectors. Presuming authenticity, values can range dramatically. Key factors are: the placement, size and clarity of the the star players' signatures (the bigger and bolder, the better), the type of ball (is it an "Official NFL" ball?), and the all-important overall condition of the ball and signatures. "Provenance" - the who, what, when and where of a signed ball's history, may also add value if documented. If genuine, your ball would be worth $500 to as much as $750, depending on all the aforementioned factors. An absolutely pristine official ball with Lombardi would be worth as much as as $1000. With autographs, a picture is truly worth the proverbial thousand words, and can save alotta time in the authentication, appraisal, and selling process.

Just an FYI, a couple weeks ago in a New York auction, a '62, '63, and '65 Packer team signed balls went over $2500 a piece. The '65 went highest at $2980. This ball will fetch much more considering it is the first year for the superbowl, in which Green Bay defeated Kansas City. Other than Lombardi, you have 9 other HOFer's on it. Once authenticated, this ball will be the needle in a haystack. Anything less than $10k would be crazy.
