Brock was a ball hawk like few other two-way linemen of his era. A steady and reliable offensive center for nine years, he stood out more as a linebacker on defense. At the time, teams played five- and six-man fronts on defense with the fullback and center often playing the two linebacker positions.

That's how Brock intercepted 20 passes during his career, not counting the team-high eight that newspaper accounts credited to him his rookie year before the NFL tracked interceptions as an official statistic. Add those to his total and Brock would have more career interceptions than any linebacker in Packers history.

Brock (D. 1987) was one of the biggest stars of his era, his one misfortune was that he was a contemporary of several other great centers, including Mel Hein of the Giants, Clyde "Bulldog" Turner of the Chicago Bears and Alex Wojciechowicz of the Detroit Lions, all members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. While Brock was a consensus all-pro once and either a first- or second-team selection in three other seasons, he probably never received the recognition he deserved.

Offered is an autographed 3x5 index card that was originally purchased from Roy Pitts (legendary in the mail collector).  There are some handwritten notes on the back dated 3-16-67 (Roy would notate when he received an autograph back).  Signed on the front in blue ballpoint pen.

Super rare autograph that is on the want list of many Packers and football autograph collectors!
