If you’re a Green Bay Packers fan, or even just an NFL fan, you just might get an opportunity to become an NFL owner. The Green Bay Packers, the only NFL team publicly owned, is floating a proposal to begin selling shares of the Green Bay Packers again.
I can remember seeing one of these certificates when I was enduring a short-lived stint as a telephone service salesman, something I hope to never have to do again. I was in a guys office and he had his one share of the Green Bay Packers up on the wall. At the time I thought it was neat and I’m tempted to try and get me one, even though I’m a diehard New Orleans Saints fan.
Buying shares in the Green Bay Packers won’t get you a whole lot. I think you get to walk through the locker room or something. But it will allow the Green Bay Packers to upgrade their stadium and facilities and it will give you something the neighbor next door probably doesn’t have. And that’s something.Eric Drouant
