No one knew quite where Herb Adderley would fit in with the Green Bay Packers when Vince Lombardi chose him in the first round of the 1961 NFL draft. With Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung established as backfield stars, the former Michigan State star running back seemed destined to ride the bench and practice with the second team. Then, when starting cornerback Hank Gremminger went down with an injury, Lombardi made one of his most brilliant moves. He gave the raw speed, refined instincts, and pure athleticism of the former offensive star a shot to replace Gremminger...and five NFL Championships later, the rest is Packers history!

This fantastic image, published in poster size exclusively for SportsPosterWarehouse.com, features the Hall of Fame cornerback in the prime of his career, lining up on the outside against an opposing wideout on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. From the NFL's 50th Anniversary Season (1969), his final with the Packers before joining the soon-to-be-juggernaut Dallas Cowboys, this poster is the perfect reminder of the great defensive play that helped make the Packers the team of the '60s. Printed from the original photographic negative, and complete with official NFL Properties serialized hologram, this is both a stunning piece for any fan, and a valuable collector's item for years to come!
