Willie Wood was a key member of the Green Bay Packers and the pro football dominance in the 1960s. Yet the 5-10, 190-pound University of Southern California quarterback who specialized in running the ball, was not drafted by any National Football League team. He had to seek a tryout and prove his worth before the Packers accepted him as a free agent in 1960. Within a short time, Willie was recognized as a premier free safety in the NFL. He became a starter in his sophomore 1961 season and held that job for more than a decade until his retirement following the 1971 campaign. Wood, who was born in Washington, D. Won first- or second-team All-NFL honors nine times in a nine-year stretch from 1962 through the 1970 season. A Pro Bowl participant eight times, 1963, 1965 through 1971, Wood also played in six NFL championship games. The Packers won all but the first one in 1960. Willie also was the starting free safety for Green Bay in Super Bowl I against the Kansas City Chiefs and Super Bowl II against the Oakland Raiders. His 50-yard interception return of a Len Dawson pass early in the third quarter of Super Bowl I broke open a close contest and paved the way for the Packers 35-10 triumph over the Chiefs. He won the NFL interception title in 1962 with nine steals. Doubling on the punt return team, Willie also won the league punt return championship with a 16.1-yard average in 1961. In 12 years, he carried back 187 punts for 1,391 yards and two touchdowns. In 1989 he was awarded the ULTIMATE Award for a NFL Player and that was enshrinement into the NFL Hall of Fame. Consider that in any given year the super bowl winner will give out 200 to 300 Super Bowl Rings and you dont have to have played in the super bowl to have a or get a Super Bowl Ring. Every year this happens. There are plenty of Players who get rings wont ever sniff the NFL Hall of Fame. Players like Dan Marino and Bruce Smith and Jim Kelly although have played in super bowls never got the winning Super Bowl Ring. There are players who get a Super Bowl Ring who never ever played a single down in a season. Still they get a shinny ring. To get a NFL HOF ring you have to be the Best of the Best. Willie Wood actually was one of these fortunate players who can say he won multiple Super Bowls and been awarded a NFL HOF Ring. These rings are truly special. In any given year there maybe between 3 to 6 people who are awarded HOF Rings. This is by far Rarer than the Super Bowl Ring. The HOF Ring is the culmination and continues excellence of a whole entire career not just one season. These Rings dont come up for sale very often. One more thing that makes this Ring so special it belonged to a player from one of the iconic and legendary NFL Teams of all Time the Famed Green Bay Packers. Outside of the 26 players that the Chicago Bears has produced the Packers are in 2nd place with 21 Players in the NFL with Bret Favre who will be there as a Packer no doubt 5 years after he retires. This is truly a once in a Lifetime opportunity to own a ring like this. I have obtained this ring directly from this well known Packer Collector. I have a signed letter of auth from this person stating this was Willie Woodss actual ring. A copy of this letter will also come with this 1989 HOF Ring. Since I did not obtain this ring directly from Mr. Woods I had contacted an Executive with the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, OH and he had VERIFIED that the ring I now possess looks exactly like what Willies Woods actual Original NFL HOF Ring would have looked like when he was issued this Ring in 1989. He also confirmed to me that the NFL started in 1998 and changed the ring so that the newer inductees now get a ring that has a blue stone with a single diamond in the center. So again this Executive with the NFL Hall of Fame verified that the ring I have is correct for the time period that the ring was issued out by the NFL and looks to be the ring that Willie was originally awarded in 1989. This is a 10 Karat Yellow Gold Ring was made by the L. The front of the ring has Pro Footballs Hall of Fame. There is a blue stone in the center with a Football player outlined in white on the blue stone. On one side it has the name of WOOD at the top and under that is 3 Football players and Elected1989 on top of a shield at the bottom. The other side has SAFTEY which represents Willie Woods Position. Below that is the front of the Canton Hall of Fame Building and under that is shield with Hall of Fame on it. The Ring is a size 11 ½ and weighs at 32.3 grams of 10K Yellow Gold. Inside of the ring it is engraved the Proper Manufacture Markings this being LGB 10K which stands for the L. This Ring was verified and confirmed by the NFL HOF in Canton Ohio as what Willie Woods Actual Ring would have and should look like when he was given this ring back in 1989. Since 1998 the NFL HOF Rings are now issued a Diamond on top of the blue stone instead of the White Football Player on the blue stone. This Ultra Rare Ring will also come with a Letter of Authenticity from Championship Sports Rings which is one of the most respected sources for Authentic Rings in the country. Willie is currently living in an assisted care facility in Washington, D. And has had many operative procedures as a result of his being injured during his NFL career. His situation is one of many of former NFL players suffering from disabilities and even dementia and need a lot more help than the NFL is willing to provide to ex-players. Here are some interesting facts to observe and to most will be shocked.
