Highlights

League’s Best

Prior to the start of the 1929 season, the Packers signed three players who became instrumental in winning three straight league titles from 1929-31 – Cal Hubbard, Mike Michalske and Johnny Blood. Those first three championships, declared by league record, featured crucial victories over the New York Giants each season.

Severe financial hardship soon followed, as the franchise went into receivership for nearly a year and a half following a jury award to an injured spectator. A group of community leaders known as “The Hungry Five” saved the team, and the arrival of star Don Hutson in 1935 began another run of championship prosperity, beginning with a victory in the 1936 NFL title game, with the league now playing postseason contests to crown its champions.
