    Sorry if that came off in a negative way, I meant no harm by it.

    It is a very interesting piece of Packer and NFL history just reading the little I did about it. Thanks for sharing.

    In good condition, I would say it is worth couple hundred bucks. As to the game, they use to pit top NFL teams against college all stars for raising money for the Knights of Columbus. I believe this was the only game in which Red Grange played for the Packers.

    Was actually wondering if anyone had any personal insight that wasn't on google. And yes I was wondering if it was the only game red played with the pack.

    The Packer in 19 30's and early 1940's often played Football exhibition games in California and even in Hawaii after the NFL season ended to make extra money. If fact, Curly's 2nd and 3rd Wife's were from California. Curly lived part time in California, usually after NFL Season ended

    Green Bay Packer fans often said of Curly that he "went California" on Packer fans. In fact two of his three wives were frm California. One wife was a former Miss California contest winner .

    It wasn' t until 1946 that California would have a NFL team. That was when the Cleveland Rams moved to LA in 1946 and became LA Rams .

    In 1949, California got it's second team. The NFL merged with the All America Football Conference (AAFC) with the NFL. The San Francisco 49ers of AAFC joined the NFL. The 49ers first season iu NFL was 1950.
