Out of stock


For sale here is a vintage 70s Gang Green football team sketch celluloid button pin from 1978. It measures 3″ across. I’m not sure if this was for the Green Bay Packers, the New York Jets, or the Oregon Ducks. Both the Jets and the Ducks use the “Gang Green” phrase, but I also saw reference online to this button as being a tribute to a crazy Packers fan named Robert Wagner who dressed himself as a character he dubbed “Gang Green” at Packers games in this era. Also, I had found this button in a large collection of Green Bay Packers memorabilia. However, I’m not sure why a tribute to a crazy fan would include other player characters as well. So I have no conclusive evidence as to which team this was meant to represent. The front is in good vintage condition with discoloring and light surface scratching. The back has scratching, wear, and rust spots. This vintage Gang Green button pin would be a great gift for the football fan or to add to a collection!
