What got Kramer reflecting on his NFL years and the mounds of Packers memorabilia that he had stowed away in his garage since the early days of his career? It was a package he received from the NFL in 1969. In it, he found a book celebrating the first 50 years of the league and discovered his name alongside gridiron greats like Red Grange and Bronko Nagurski.
“It was nice to be a part of that company,” he said. “I was the only guard selected in the first 50 years.”
With help from Heritage specialists, Kramer dug through trunk after trunk of memorabilia and came up with a trove of items that haven’t seen the light of day in more than 40 years.
“There was an awful lot of stuff in there that I’d forgotten about,” Kramer said.
The ring will be offered by Heritage Auctions in its Platinum Night Sports Auction at the Fletcher-Sinclair Mansion (2 E. 79th Street at 5th Ave.).
