Jack Ham Bio-
Ham played football while attending Penn State, making quite a name and then in 1971, he was drafted as a second round pick, quickly making All-American.  His skill as a linebacker allowed him to debut early, leading to being on the All-Pro team six times and playing in eight consecutive Pro Bowl games.  The “edge” that Ham brought to the game was speed, being just one of a handful of outside linebackers capable of playing pass defense too.  Just a few of Ham’s highlights includes 25 successful sacks, 21 recovered fumbles, and 32 interceptions, putting him in the Defensive 20/20 Club.

Additionally, Ham played First-Team All-Pro six times, All-Pro twice, and in the Pro Bowl eight times.  He also played in four Super Bowls and was named to both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Although Jack Ham football cards can be purchased locally through various sports memorabilia stores, eBay has one of the best selections.
