In tribute to legendary Green Bay Packers sports photographer Vernon Biever, who passed away at 87 on Oct. 14, here's a sample of some of his most memorable photographs. Biever started his career with the Packers in 1941 and was one of six shooters who attended every one of the first 35 Super Bowls. He first attended a Packers game as a newspaper photographer in 1941 and later became the team's official photographer. Photo: Packers' wide receiver Max McGee lunges for a pass during a 1954 game.
