$67 million in shares...almost 270k shares at $250 apiece. So basically they had a lot of people paying for a worthless piece of paper and the novelty to say they're an "owner." It covered almost half their upgrade costs. Interesting Bud Selig is a former Director of the Packers, which means he actually held a position that mattered. I'm not sure if he served on their Executive Committee or not though.
