by Paul Heling

Key pieces of Packers history will still be available to the public during construction of the new Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame at Lambeau Field. They're just moving downtown to the new "Touchdown" exhibit at the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay opening April 5th

As for the shoulder pads, they belonged to Johnny "Blood" McNally. The NFL Hall of Famer was also on the All Decade Team of the 1930's and a four time NFL champion (1929, 1930, 1931, and 1936). He was a Wisconsin kid too, coming from New Richmond on the west side of the state. He went pro in 1925 with the Milwaukee Badgers, then his travels included the Duluth Eskimos, Pottsville Maroons, Green Bay Packers (two times), Pittsburgh Pirates (two times) and the Buffalo Tigers. All four of his NFL championships came in Green Bay where he is honored in the Packers Hall of Fame.
