Review:

One of the unexpected offshoots of a championship season is that the history of the winners become interesting again. Of course, the Packers' past is long and storied; that Vernon Biever has been there to record it with his camera for more than 50 years gives the team's history another thread of continuity. This wonderful collection of vintage and current Packer pictures, accompanied by mini oral histories--from Don Hutson catching a pass to a pensive Vince Lombardi to a cheesehead in full battle array--makes for a delightful celebration of a unique professional franchise.
