Here's a link to the SB I roster. It will take some time to look through all the names, but I'd guess a surprisingly large number of them are still living. Albeit, some are just barely hanging on. SB I Roster

I was just looking at a list of the oldest living Packers (I believe current as of April 14), and there are still four members of the 1949 Packers (Curly's last Packer team) with us.

No, but your post added him to my list. I am collecting every Packer card put out between 1948 (Leaf) and 1975 (Topps).... and the cards of every player that spent time with the Packers at any point in time......that has lead me to such guys as Lamar McHan and the greatest football card.... ever:

Going through this list, I found that many players are still with us. What was intriguing, though, was each player's playing weight. Gale Gillingham, Guard, weighed 255. Lionel Aldridge, Right Defensive End, weighed 254 and Jerry Kramer, Guard, weighed 245. It was a different league back then!

I read a NY Times article from the '62 championship week wherein Jerry Kramer was described as "A giant of a man" weighing over 235 lbs. You have to remember that the great depression deprived a lot of people of their full genetic birthright. Many were malnourished and the "norm" was consequently reduced. My paternal grandfather was over 6' tall and Grandma was about 5'7" even in her 60's. Yet my dad, born in 1928, grew up fairy tale poor and barely reached 5'9". My mom was 5'4". Only one of...

Dad told me how his mom made sure he got a glass of milk every week. We had a freakin' river of the stuff in our house. We had a river of the stuff in our house when I was growing up, and I only reached 5'8". Of course, Grandpa was about 5'2", and not because of the depression.

Your Howton card must be pre 1959. Lombardi traded him as one of his first acts as GM.

'59 was also the year Lombardi changed the uniforms from blue to green, wasn't it?

Ammo. Correct. That was a '58 Topps. The '59 set Fedya, shows a combo of some blue and some almost olive green uniforms. Many times they would use pictures from previous years, so I do think the Pack went "Green" in '59. Also, notice Jim Taylor-----that's not Jim Taylor---Topps used the wrong picture of him two years in a row. Yeah, I'm a geek.

I don't think Jerry Kramer ever wore 68 either. Maybe as a practice jersey or some thing.

Definitely one of the voices of my youth. Of course in those days the Packers were so bad, if you wanted to watch some exciting football, Air Coryell was always fun, and often with Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen on the call.

Yep during those dark years I would hope there was a good game in the later in the day and Enberg and Olsen were calling the game. Definitely one of the voices of my youth. RIP Mr. Enberg.

Another part of my childhood gone.....such a soothing, fatherly voice. He hosted a game show called "Sports Challenge" in the mid 70's which was so cool at the time because you could see and hear the biggest super-stars in a fun casual setting.

We must be almost the same age. Back in 1979 when the Packers were really bad, I jumped on the San Diego Chargers bandwagon with Dan Fouts, John Jefferson, etc. Dick Enberg and Merlin Olsen seemed to be the broadcast team for those guys every week so I also got very familiar with them. They were just an excellent announcing duo and seemed to be perfect for announcing those really fun to watch Chargers teams. RIP Mr. Enberg.

That is kind of funny about jumping on a bandwagon. In the late 70's when the Packers were horrible all the kids at school jumped on a bandwagon (even though we all rooted for the Packers but were embarrassed to say it). I jumped on the Raiders bandwagon big time. And I think Enberg was doing a ton of their games then if I remember right.

I would say as a 10 year old in 1979 I still rooted for the Packers #1a, but the Chargers were #1b. Once John Jefferson got traded to the Packers in '81, I firmly moved away from the Chargers and cemented my Packers' fandom. In the late '70s probably the biggest bandwagon team amongst the kids my age was the Dallas Cowboys. I didn't gravitate towards them, but I did root for them when they would play the Steelers dynasty who in their dark black uniforms looked like the representation of...

Though a little younger, I did the exact same. Chargers were way ahead of their time. Jefferson, Joiner, Muncie, Winslow and Fouts.
