  1. John,

    I am a lifelong Packer fan starting in the 1960s. I have been making custom cards for my own enjoyment for several years. My first project was to have a card of every Lombardi Packer 1959-1967. I finished that after finally finding Packer photos of Gene Breen and Ed Holler. I started adding cards from all eras. If the player was never on a card and I found a nice photo, I created a card. I’ve added almost 300 new cards to my Packer book. It is always great to find someone that shares this passion. My other great obsession is collecting NFL video. I have gamefilms going back to the 1940s and clips and highlights going back to the 1920s. Please feel free to contact me.


    • Hey Bob!

      My great grandpa is Charlie Mathys who played from 1922-26 for the Packers. I would love to see the cards you made of him. I would also be interested in purchasing those cards as well. Do you have any game film from when he played? I would like to see that as well!



  2. Hi John –

    I really enjoy your writing and your website! A quick question or you. On a prior post, you talked about the Packers’ replacement players from 1987 (https://packerspastperfect.wordpress.com/2015/12/20/the-replacement-packers/). There were a few football cards you displayed there. I was wondering if there was any source out there (maybe the football card set you displayed) that had images of replacement players (both Packers and others)? This is for a research project and I would be happy for any advice you have.
