    Man, I can't wait to answer people when they ask: Are you a GB Packers fan?

    Actually, I'm part-owner. :tup: :D

    Is anyone else concerned that they will sell out within the first day? I have been pretty vigilant for the past two months typing "Packers stock sale" in google every day to stay abreast of the situation. So, I will be aware of the day, hour, minute the shares go on sale. I read in one of the articles that a packers official said the demand will probably out weigh the supply because of the current popularity of the team. My question is do you think this is something that will sell out like a popular concert or do you think they will be around for at least a couple of days?

    I believed the 1997 sale went on for months. I really don't think they will be sold out in hours.

    The thing that has me worried is that this time soooooo many more peeps have internet access. Anyone, can jump on their laptop and purchase shares. I set my alarm for an EARLY wake up on Tuesday morning to try to get a shot to buy at least 1 share. (Hopefully 2) :tup:

    That is a really good point. Good thing I live in Germany, I'll have the time difference working in my favor. Hopefully it will also be available for foreigners. Good luck!

    The other thing that concerns me is the sentiment that "I can't believe I missed the last one. NO WAY am I going to miss this one!" from alot of Packers fans. Whether they were too young, didn't have the money so on so forth, I have a feeling demand will be far greater this time around. We have members who (maybe jokingly) claim the house payment may suffer this month if they go on sale. If that is true or not, at least it shows how serious people are about making sure they don't miss out this time. I'm a little concerned, to be honest.

    I will constantly be scouring the web for a time of when the shares go one sale. As soon as I find this info, I will post it here on the forum. I want Packers fans buying shares, my buddy a Chiefs fan said he want's to buy 3 shares because "When do you get an opportunity to by Part owner of an NFL team? Even, if I don't care for the Packers, I'm buying!" :tdown::poop:

    As far as I know, the number of shares for the Stock sale has not been set. But the Packers have 280,000 shares available that were authorized from the last sale in 1997-1998.

    The last stock sale end, I believe, until March of 1998. Any one who wishes to purchase Packer share will have plenty of time to do so.

    Definitely not going to sell out within the first 24 hours. At $300/each, there will be plenty to go around. Plus if they sell out 280,000 @ $300/each that is $84,000,000. Good down payment on the renovations, lol. I just hope whatever website they put it through can handle the traffic on the first couple of days, lol.

    LOL, sorry. Yes, I read it is $250 as well, I think someone said here they are willing to pay up to $300. Sorry for the confusion! As far as I know, it is going to be $250.

    What are the perks of buying this stock other than one can brag and say they own part of an NFL team?
