Reviews - What do customers think about Before They Were The Packers: Green Bay's Town Team Days?
An excellent primer on pre Green Bay Packers history Sep 8, 2004
As a serious football historian/researcher and writer I found this work to be a valuable addition to my personal library. It is concise, well researched and helps to clear up a lot of the gray area from the period leading up to the Packers joining the APFA/NFL in 1921. Any football(even the casual) fan will find it a worthy investment in time and a modest sum of money for a great lesson on the last of a very unique sports franchise.
