VINCE LOMBARDI and JON GILLIAM
Vince Lombardi signs a check to center Jon Gilliam in 1960.
Check signed: "Vincent Lombardi" as Head Coach of the Green Bay Packers, 8x3. Green Bay, Wisconsin, July, 28, 1960. Drawn on Vince Lombardi's account at Kellogg Citizens National Bank, payable to Jon Gilliam in the amount of $10.00, endorsed, "Jon Gilliam" on verso. In his rookie season, Vince Lombardi (1913-1970) earned Coach of the Year honors. The following year, he led the Packers to their first Western Conference title since 1944. The legendary coach led the Green Bay Packers to four additional NFL titles, and his teams won the first two Super Bowls (1967, 1968). At the time of his death, Lombardi was the NFL's all-time most winning coach with percentage of .740 (105-35-6). The Super Bowl trophy is named in honor of Lombardi, who was elected to the Football Hall of Fame in 1971. Jon Gilliam (b.1938) was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 14th round (161th pick overall) in the 1960 NFL drafts. Failing to make Lombardi's final cut that season, Gilliam went on to play for the AFL Dallas Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs between 1961 and 1967. With the Chiefs he battled his old team, the reigning Champions Green Bay Packers in the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game, Super Bowl I. The Packers won 35-10. Gilliam played college ball at Oklahoma State and East Texas State. Cancellation stamps and perforations. Creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
