December 10, 1939: The Packers Take The Title at The Dairy Bowl
The recorded attendance for this game was a record setting 32,279 people. The $83,510.35 that was brought in at the gate also set a new record. By todays standards that would be $1.4 million. The money was divided among the players as well as the organizations. The 33 members of the Packers received a little more than $700 apiece. By todays standards that would total nearly $12,000. The 34 players on the Giants roster received a little more than $450 which would equal a little more than $7,500 today. I throw this information in because in the day and age we live in those numbers would be scoffed at. Just something to think about.
