Each card of this very difficult regional issue has been graded by PSA. The 1961 season was the beginning of the Vince Lombardi led Green Bay Packers dynasty, as they won five NFL titles in seven seasons, plus the first two Super Bowls. Separate from the usual Topps and Fleer cards these were smaller than normal, regionally issued set in Wisconsin. Distribution was limited to one card stapled to the milk cartons, and that is why many of the cards seen today have staple holes or torn corners as kids feverishly ripped them from cartons. However, a complete set of the cards (without staple holes) could be obtained from the dairy for a small fee. The offered set originate directly from the dairy, and have been held in the same collection for nearly six decades. Of the 36 cards in the set, a total of 20 cards are very difficult to find single prints. One veteran hobbyist remembered obtaining several thousand fresh cards, with zero single prints in the lot. Single print numbers include 1 through 8, 17 through 24, and 33 through 36. Each card in this set was recently submitted to PSA and judged under their harshest standards.

Includes: PSA NM-MT 8 - 2 cards with #9 Forester and 31. PSA NM 7 - 1 card, #35 Toburen SP. PSA EX-MT+ 6.5 - 1 card, #34 Hickman SP. PSA EX-MT 6 - 23 cards with #3 Davis SP, 5 Temp SP, 6 Tunnell SP, 8 Jordan SP, 10 Hornung, 12, 13 Taylor, 14, 15 Moore, 16, 17 McGee SP, 18 Starr SP, 19 Nitschke SP, 21 Bettis SP, 24 Dowler SP, 25, 26, 27 Gregg, 28, 29, 30 Adderley, 33 Hackbart SP, and 36 Wood SP. PSA EX 5 - 7 cards with #2 Masters SP, 4 Quinlan SP, 7 Kanfelc SP, 11, 20 Hanner SP, 22 Thurston SP, and 23 Carpenter (MC). PSA VG-EX 4 - 1 card, #32 Roach SP. PSA VG 3 - 1 card, #1 Kramer SP.

While the majority of this set is graded PSA EX-MT 6, if viewed as a raw set, most veteran hobbyists would assess a minimally Near Mint overall grade for the set. Listed on the PSA Set Registry, and is currently ranked #11 on the Current Finest list. One of the finest sets in the hobby!
