The Green Bay Packers have a long and glorious history in professional football. Based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the Packers can trace their origins back to 1919, when Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun founded the franchise as a semi-pro team. In 1921, the Packers joined the American Professional Football Association, which later morphed into the National Football League.

To date Green Bay has captured twelve world titles, including nine NFL Championships and three Super Bowls, the latter of which occurred in 1967, 1968 and 1996. The Packers can boast of a slew of players and coaches who are now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, including Bart Starr, Herb Adderley, Paul Hornung, Don Hutson, Reggie White, Jim Taylor, Willie Wood, Johnny "Blood" McNally, Vince Lombardi, Jim Ringo, Ray Nitschke, Curly Lambeau, Henry Jordan and James Lofton.

Here are ten valuable Green Bay Packers collectibles. The Pack is always back!

Jim Taylor 1960-63 Game-Used Jersey

Hall of Fame running back Jim Taylor wore this #31 Packers road jersey during the 1960-63 era. Interestingly, this jersey was discovered in a storage room at Yankee Stadium in 1973, not all that surprising since the latter was also home to the football New York Giants for many years. The jersey bears a lot of wear and tear – Taylor rushed for over 1,000 yards per season from 1960 through 1964 – along with the requisite repairs. This Packers gem sold at auction for $7,638.
