This life-sized display piece originally hung in Lambeau Field or more likely the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame across the street. The hand-colored photograph on heavy particle wood board is the most definitive Hornung piece we have seen apart from Paul himself. In the original "stadium" frame as well, it measures a huge (but not too huge 22.5x32"). Based on the look and age this was probably first hung in 1967 when he made the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, and it was originally sold in 1997 by The Green Bay Packers Hall Of Fame with original sale label to back it up. From the Gus LeDonne collection, legendary football and sports collector who passed away too soon in 2013. A top of the line buyer, Gus bought the best of the best in the early days of our hobby.
