Hall of Fame President

In 1990, Ray Nitschke became President of the Packer Hall of Fame in Great Britain and he was its first inductee.  He just loved the idea that people in England, so far away, wanted him to head their club.  This guy who had fought his way quite literally through the streets of Chicago to become a true legend of the game was not only revered and loved in his own country but by fans of football all over the world.  Jack Pardee was obviously a huge fan of #66 as well as his letter confirms in positive terms.

Jack Pardee, Head Coach, Houston Oilers

Another coach who was always happy to answer questions that I posed in my letters
