Jim Ringo - 1958 Topps

James Stephen Ringo (1931-2007) (C) played under three head coached in the Green Bay Packers system before legendary Hall of Fame head coach Vince Lombardi arrived, turning player careers around and the franchise into one of the most dominant of any era. Ringo’s road to the NFL was an unlikely one as his Syracuse team was destroyed by Alabama 61-5 in the Orange Bowl his senior year. He felt inferior, small and unwelcome at Packers training camp, so he quit, only to find that he was less welcome back home, as they would not accept a quitter amongst them. The Green Bay Packers selected Ringo in the seventh round of the 1953 NFL Draft. Though relatively small for the center position, Jim made up for it with mobility, quickness and speed as he developed into not only one of the best centers in the National Football League, but also one of the best run blockers. Jim Ringo paved the way for Hall of Fame backs Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung to lead the NFL in rushing. He played eleven seasons with the Packers (1953-1963) before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles four his final four seasons (1964-1967). Ringo helped the Packers compete in three NFL title games and capture the 1961 and 1962 NFL League Championships, defeating the New York Giants in both. Jim Ringo was a six-time NFL All-Pro First Team selection and was named to ten NFL Pro Bowl appearances. He played a total of 187 games and recovered 7 fumbles. Following his playing days, he became an offensive line coach with the Bears, Bills, Patriots Rams and Jets from 1969-1988. John Ringo was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1981.
