The Paul Hornung Scrapbook

By Paul Hornung and Chuck Carlson

 

Personal Stories and Memories from the Golden Boy

 

A Hall of Fame running back for the Green Bay Packers from 1957 to 1966, winner of four NFL titles and the Heisman Trophy, Paul Hornung’s life on the football field has been nothing if not extraordinary. In The Paul Hornung Scrapbook (Triumph Books, October 2014), the Golden Boy gives fans a never-before-seen-look into the private collection of his memorabilia and photographs from his illustrious career.

 

Even with a bad knee, sore hips and a troublesome back, Paul still has the quick wit and brutal honesty that makes him one of the greatest storytellers in pro sports, and The Paul Hornung Scrapbook captures this essence in every page. From personal stories of famous friends like Muhammad Ali and Marilyn Monroe to an in-depth look into the high stakes of Super Bowl I, The Paul Hornung Scrapbook is filled with stories, memories and pictures from one of the most important eras in Packers history, including:

 

  • The private letter head coach and general manager Vince Lombardi gave Paul before joining the Packers
  • The worst season in Packers history, which caused Paul to think of quitting football at the young age of 23
  • Under the Golden Dome and Paul’s Heisman success at Notre Dame
  • A closer look into Paul’s childhood in Louisville with private family photos

 

With one-of-a-kind pictures from Paul’s personal collection, The Paul Hornung Scrapbook is the perfect keepsake for every Packers fan and the perfect way to look back at a golden era of the legendary franchise.
