The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin.[1] They are currently members of the North Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL), and are the third-oldest franchise in the NFL.[2] Founded in 1919 by coach, player, and future Hall of Fame inductee Curly Lambeau and sports and telegraph editor George Whitney Calhoun,[1] the Packers organization has become one of the most successful professional football teams, having won a total of 13 professional American football championships—nine NFL Championships and four Super Bowls—the most in the NFL.[3] The franchise has recorded 18 NFL divisional titles, eight NFL conference championships,[3] and the second most regular season and overall victories of any NFL franchise, behind the Chicago Bears.[4] In 1963, the Pro Football Hall of Fame was created to honor the history of professional American football and the individuals who have greatly influenced it.[5] Since the charter induction class of 1963, 27 individuals who have played or coached for the Packers have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.[6]

Of the 27 inductees, 22 made their primary contribution to football with the Packers, while the other five only contributed a minor portion of their career to the Packers.[6] Of the original 17 individuals inducted in 1963, four spent the major part of their career with the Green Bay Packers. This includes the founder Curly Lambeau,[7] the NFL's all-time offensive tackle Cal Hubbard,[8] the 1941 and 1942 Most Valuable Player Don Hutson,[9] and 1931 All-NFL player John (Blood) McNally.[10] The first two decades of the Hall of Fame's existence saw 17 Packers enshrined, including the only inductee who was not a player for the Packers, Vince Lombardi.[11] Coaching the Packers from 1959 to 1967, Lombardi led the team to five NFL Championships, including the first two Super Bowls, and an overall winning percentage of .754.[12] The most recent Packer to be inducted was the former NFL linebacker and placekicker Dave Robinson in 2013.[13]
