Pro football fans in Green Bay have always been recognized as a loyal and hearty bunch. But one wouldn’t have faulted even the most loyal ‘Cheesehead’ if s/he’d decided not to attend the 1967 NFL Championship game between the Packers and Dallas Cowboys. More than 50,000 parka-clad fans braved the elements that New Year’s Eve and watched the Packers claimed their third consecutive NFL title, with a 21-17 victory. With 4:50 left in the game the Packers found themselves trailing 17-14. But behind the leadership of future HOF Quarterback Bart Starr, they marched down field. With sixteen seconds remaining, the Packers were two feet away from victory. Starr called time out. The field was like a sheet of ice. The two previous running plays had gone nowhere. With no time outs left, a running play seemed totally out of the question. A completed pass surely would win it. Even an incomplete pass would at least stop the clock so the Packers could set up a field goal to tie the game and send it into overtime. After consulting with Packers coach Vince Lombardi, Starr returned to the huddle. Starr took the snap from center Ken Bowman, and Bowman and guard Jerry Kramer combined to take out Dallas tackle Jethro Pugh. With Pugh out of the way, Starr surprised everyone and dove over for the score. ‘We had run out of ideas,’ Starr said of the play. However, Lombardi put it another way, ‘We gambled and we won.’ The photograph of this timeless play is one of the most famous in football history and is part of our Exclusive SGA Signature Series, unsigned displays that include an SGA facsimile signature plate. In this case we’ve combined a classic 16×20 photo of the ‘Ice Bowl TD’ along with Bart Starr’s signature, game-time temperature, field and date to create a timeless piece of Sports Art from a special moment in Packers….and football..history. A GREAT gift for any Packers fan!
