Just a quick note that Titletownnostalgia.com is new and improved and is now LIVE again. This is our sister site and we hope you will find some interesting additions to your Packers collection, or at the very least, see some nice pieces you have never seen and treat our storefront kind of like a museum.
I did something last week that I hadn't done in about ten years ... I took a drive down to the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay. For those of you who don't know much about the museum, it's located on near downtown Green Bay and have some great exhibits.
I wasn't sure what Packers items were on display, but was pleasantly surprised. Not only did the Neville have a 1923 Packers Corp. stock certificate on exhibit, but it also featured eight exclusive videos documenting interesting aspects of the team.
It cost me only three bucks to get into the museum and that was a steal considering I got to watch all eight videos at that price.
One thing interesting about the stock cert they had on display ... It was notated as a "COPY." But I really think it was an original, due to the perforation you could see on the left side.
I would like to hear others' opinions on this, as it was very interesting to say the least. One other thing about the Neville ... Some time ago the Green Bay Press-Gazette donated their Packers photo archives and slides to the museum. Anybody interested can actually set up a time to go through all the photos and slides. All the team photo negatives dating all the way back to 1919 are kept in this collection. The collector value on this stuff would be through the roof, and it is accessible to anyone interested. Simply amazing and definitely worth a look.
