Decade: 1960s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Display piece featuring Packers/Redskins coaching legend Vince Lombardi. Milk Cocoa container displays images of Lombardi on front and back.

In 1969, Lombardi became head coach and general manager of the Washington Redskins. The Redskins would finish with a record of 7–5–2, their first winning record in 14 years. The foundation that Lombardi put in place was the groundwork for Washington’s early 1970s success under former Los Angeles Rams Coach George Allen.
