If you say "3" most sports fans would think of Babe Ruth; Green Bay Packer fans would remember Tony Canadeo.

This unique book features 99 chapters -- one keyed to each uniform number.

Overview

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. Numbers can conjure up vivid memories in sports, especially to Packer fans. This unique book features 99 chapters -- one keyed to each uniform number. Every number features a profile of the most famous player to wear that number, followed by details and stats on all the others who wore it as well. No other sports book reviews a team history quite like this. A refreshing take on a most popular team!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Maxymuk, a librarian, longtime Packer fan, and LJ reviewer, takes an affectionately detailed look at his favorite pro football team. In 99 profiles organized uniquely by uniform numbers, he gives the background, playing careers, and later life of the significant wearers of each team number. Maxymuk adds lists of others who may have used the same numbers and includes other frequent items of Packer trivia. He salutes and sometimes faults the 20 Packer Hall of Famers, especially the team's two most cherished coaches, Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi (to whom he awards an honorary jersey number six), and players Bart Starr, Don Hutson, Ron Kramer, and Jim Taylor. This quirky, original Green Bay Packer reference is recommended especially for public libraries serving serious Packer fans.-Morey Berger, St. Joseph's Hosp.
