Ultra rare chrome!

Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears, playing to a capacity crowd of 25,000 in City Stadium.



City Stadium is the name of a football stadium in Green Bay, Wisconsin. It was the home of the Green Bay Packers of the NFL from 1926 to 1956. It remains the home of the Green Bay East High School football team. Previously, the Packers had played their home games at nearby Hagemeister Park (the site of East High School itself) and Bellevue Park.

The stadium originally seated 6,000. It was gradually expanded to seat 25,000, but by the 1950s that was still too small. The leaders of the NFL, including George Halas, informed the Green Bay club owners that they needed to improve their facilities or else the Packers would be moved to Milwaukee permanently.

The residents of Green Bay responded by building a new City Stadium, which opened in 1957, with old City Stadium becoming a high school field. The new stadium was renamed Lambeau Field in 1965 and has become one of the most revered stadiums in the NFL.
