The Packers started selling 280,000 shares of the stock on December 6, and according to the team, as of February 14 they had fewer than 17,000 left.
Each share costs $250, plus a $25 handling fee. The team is hoping the stock sale helps raise a portion of the $130 million needed to cover the costs of renovating Lambeau Field. At last report, the Packers stock sale had raised more than $65 million.
The last time the Packers held a stock sale was in 1997. That year, they put up 400,000 shares for sale for $200 apiece. The team only sold about 120,000, raising $24 million.
The Packers have been a publicly owned team since 1923.
A team spokesperson told the media recently that the February 29 deadline to buy stock will not be extended.
