Bring Jim in to Speak

Jim speaks to groups of all sizes about Packer history throughout the football season.  With the Packers preparing to play their 100th season, Jim uses photos of his extensive memorabilia collection of old football cards, newspapers and magazines to trace Packer history from Lambeau to McCarthy.
