CANTON -- 82-year-old Jerry Kramer is about to be inducted into Canton, Ohio's Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kramer's locker in Canton contains plenty of cool memorabilia ranging from his helmet, a football from the 1966 championship, an old letter jacket and of course the awards and ribbons. Things from all aspects of his life are on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Packers guard spent over half of his life waiting on the call. Finally, Jerry can't thank the Green and Gold Nation, who wrote relentlessly to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. 

"Thank you. Thank you. Thank you,” he told Lance Allan.

Kramer, a member of the Packers from 1958-68, will be the 14th member of the Lombardi-era Packers to receive enshrinement. That team won five NFL titles from 1961-67, a record for one franchise in a decade - and an unprecedented three titles in a row (1965-67).
