“Lombardi. A certain magic still lingers in the very name. It speaks of cold and snow in the cold November mud.”
-As read by John Facenda for NFL Films

In language befitting an NFL Films script, Vincent T. Lombard, almost a half-century after his death, towers over the profession of coaching as the Matterhorn towers above man himself.

In the annals of coaching, no man has ever garnered the respect, the reputation or the god-like status of Lombardi. He was football’s greatest leader in an era when the game came of age and skyrocketed into a place in the national sports consciousness that had previously been reserved only for Major League Baseball.

Lombardi was football and his Green Bay Packers were more than mere football teams, they were iconic legends seemingly carved from the icy tundra of Lambeau Field. The simplicity and perfection of The Packer Power Sweep redefined football for a generation, providing a smash-mouth toughness that guided the game until the modern, pass-happy era of The West Coast Offense.

The Prestige of Owning a Lombardi Autograph

Lombardi autographs are prized relics sought after by football collectors across the globe. To own one is to own a piece of football itself.

Lombardi cherished giving autographs, always wanting to make the experience personal with the person requesting the signature. Rarely are Lombardi autographs seen without a personalization, making this photo all the more rare and all the more special.

Believed to have been signed during the final days of his life in 1970, this glorious Lombardi image features only the coach’s name. Football’s greatest leader and ultimate commander wears the name of the Washington Redskins, signifying his final chapter in football and in life. Despite leaving his beloved Packers due to cancer, he simply couldn’t stay away from coaching.
