Card companies looking for the ultimate memorabilia card might want to consider calling some folks around Green Bay. The goal posts from 1967 NFL Championship Game are already in pieces.

When the Packers captured their third straight title on Bart Starr’s quarterback sneak in the final seconds, fans rushed the field and tore down both sets of goal posts despite the arctic conditions. They were carried out of Lambeau Field in several pieces, which quickly became even smaller pieces used for a variety of pedestrian tasks, but always treasured–especially now.
