Super Bowl I Sweatshirt Donated to Packers Hall of Fame
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame got a new piece of memorabilia on Friday — a sweatshirt designed in 1967 celebrating the Packers victory in Super Bowl I, which was then called the NFL-AFL Championship Game.
The shirt was made by Russell Prell, who was on hand for the donation, along with his grandson and the shirt’s owner, Kevin Eggebeen. Prell sold the shirts through JCPenney, which is where Eggebeen’s mother purchased it for him all those years ago.
The shirt, which features a globe, the image of Bart Starr and the words “World Champs” and “Super Bowl 1967,” is believed to be the first Super Bowl shirt ever produced.
It will be authenticated before going on display in the Hall of Fame.WBAY
