GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers legend Jerry Kramer, always humble, took the podium Wednesday as the team unveiled a Hall of Fame exhibit in his honor.
"I'm tickled to death to be here," he said.
Kramer is getting ready to travel to Canton, Ohio, to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It's been a long time coming. Kramer had been passed over for the honor 11 times before being voted in for the 2018 class.
The fierce offensive guard played with the Packers from 1958-1968 and helped the team win two Super Bowls and five NFL Championships.
All Packers fans remember that crucial block he made in the Ice Bowl.
At Wednesday's ribbon cutting for the Packers Hall of Fame exhibit, Kramer shared stories from his career.
The exhibit at Lambeau Field includes Kramer jerseys and NFL Championship rings.
One of the most unusual exhibits includes fragments of wood that were removed from Kramer during the 1964 season. The splinters had been in Kramer's abdomen since he was 17 when he stepped on a board.
