Here’s an oddity. On the 1959 Packers, the starting defensive backfield members were numbered consecutively. Safeties Bobby Dillon and Emlen Tunnell wore 44 and 45, while cornerbacks Hank Gremminger and Jesse Whittenton wore 46 and 47. Dillon retired in 1960 and was replaced in the lineup by Johnny Symank, number 27. This has got to be a real rarity among any offensive or defensive units.

Here’s a 1960-style mashup that shows Whittenton’s number…
