The 1961 Lake to Lake Green Bay Packers set consists of 36 unnumbered, green and white cards each measuring approximately 2.5x3.25 inches. The set is full of short prints and difficult cards with card numbers 1-8 and 17-24 the most difficult to obtain, while cards 33-36 are also in shorter supply than #9-16 and #25-32 which are the easiest cards in the set. This set originated from a collector in Wisconsin, who picked this set card by card directly from the factory in 1961 and these do not contain any staple marks which was standard when the cards were distributed. This is a very difficult set to complete and is rare to find it fully complete and in this high grade condition. Includes: #'s 1 Kramer (VG/EX), 2 Masters (NM, print), 3 Willie Davis (EX/MT+), 4 Quinlan (NM), 5 Temp (NM), 6 Tunnell (EX/MT), 7 Knafelc (EX), 8 Jordan (NM+), 10 Hornung (NM), 13 Taylor (NM), 17 McGee (NM/MT), 18 Starr (NM+ sharp), 19 Nitschke (NM/MT), 20 Hanner (NM, print), 21 Bettis (NM/MT), 22 Thurston (NM/MT), 23 Carpenter (NM+, print), 24 Dowler (NM/MT), 25 Iman (NM/MT), 27 Gregg (NM/MT, print), 28 Ringo (NM+), 30 Adderly (NM/MT), 33 Hackbart (NM/MT), 34 Hickman (NM/MT), 35 Toburen (NM/MT) and 36 Wood (NM). Balance of cards grade NM (4) to NM/MT (7). One of the nicest 1961 Lake to Lake Packers complete sets we have seen.
