Overview

Celebrate the championship heritage, great players and passionate fanbase that make Titletown, U.S.A. the most coveted address in football

Green Bay has a history like no other city in the National Football League. Here the passion runs deep and true through generations of fans, and the success has been unparalleled: 13 championships, 22 Hall of Fame players, a past festooned with grand names such as Lambeau and Lombardi and Nitschke.

Not surprisingly, the Packers have won the admiration of fans the world over, and Sports Illustrated celebrates the franchise with this collection of new and classic stories and photographs.

The great players are all here, from Johnny Blood to Clay Matthews, and so is every title game, featuring moments such as Bart Starr's sneak in the Ice Bowl and Desmond Howard's kickoff return in Super Bowl XXXI. SI also salutes, in words and pictures, the most dedicated fans in sport. From cover to cover, this is a tribute any cheesehead would cherish.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A celebration of the perhaps the most storied franchise in football history . . . it's a must-have in any Packer fan's collection." --AllGreenBayPackers.com

"Breathtaking photography has been Sports Illustrated's calling card since the magazine's inception. And with its new coffee table book--Packers: Green, Gold and Glory--SI has plucked hundreds of dazzling action shots from its vaults to tell Green Bay's storied history. . . . a page-turner." --Tim McCormick, Milwaukee Magazine

"A fantastic addition to the Packers canon." --Cheesehead TV

"Extraordinary stories and spectacular photographs . . . a 'must have' addition to the personal collections of every die-hard Packer fan!" --Midwest Book Review

"This will be of interest to Packer fans everywhere." --Library Journal

Library Journal
The Green Bay Packers are one of a handful of NFL teams that enjoy a truly national following. It is not surprising that Sports Illustrated is mining its impressive text and photo archives to produce its version of an illustrated team history. In addition to sections on the 33 best players and a dozen title games, the book recycles five memorable articles from the magazine: on the town itself, on the Packers' Depression-era Runyanesque player Johnny "Blood" McNally, on the return of Bart Starr as a coach, on the coming of Brett Favre, and on the 2011 Super Bowl win. The mostly color photographs are artfully selected and reproduced to invite happy reverie for Packer fans. However, the 20-page section of photographs of decked-out fans at Lambeau Field is space that could have been better inhabited by more team coverage. VERDICT This will be of interest to Packer fans everywhere.
