1958T Green Bay Packers

The 1958 season was definitely a low point in the storied history of the Green Bay Packers.   After a disappointing 3-9 season, and a sixth place finish in the NFL’s Western Division in 1957, head coach Lisle Blackbourn resigned after four seasons.   Enter Raymond “Scooter” McLean, who had been a Packers interim coach for two games in 1953, to take over the mantle of command for the 1958 season.  Although hope springs eternal, the Packers would sink even deeper with a 1-10-1 record and a last place finish.

As the saying goes, “it is always darkest before the dawn.”   Despite the dismal season of 1958, a look at the roster would reveal a number of highly recognizable names.   In fact, it included those of six future Hall-of-Famers, and numerous other future All-Pros and gridiron greats of Packers lore.   The seeds of a championship franchise were waiting for the coming of a great leader who would arrive the following year.

RetroCards presents a new 18-card set featuring many of those “recognizable names.”   Would-be rookie cards, and second year cards of Packers superstars include Forrest Gregg, Jim Taylor, Paul Hornung, Jerry Kramer, Max McGee, and Bob Skoronski.   Other stars and notable names “before Vince” include Tom Bettis, Ron Kramer, Dave Hanner, John Symank, Norm Masters and Fred Cone.  Even Scooter himself gets his due in this set.
