GREEN BAY, Wis. (WEAU) – On Wednesday, two unique pictures from Packers history were donated to the Packers Hall of Fame.

Larry Winsand, formerly of Mondovi, got 96 members of the 1996 Packers Super Bowl Championship team to autograph his posters. On Wednesday, they were brought to the team's hall of fame.

"We could have left it hanging in our family room wall for many, many years,” Winsand said. “The question is, ‘How many folks could really enjoy it?’"

It took him 16 years to get all the signatures. They include Brett Favre, Ron Wolf, Reggie White, and Mike Holmgren.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WEAU) - It took 16 years and 33,000 miles of travel through 11 states, but a Packers fan was able to get every person who is on his Super Bowl 31 posters, when Green Bay beat the Patriots, to sign them.

Larry Winsand, who used to live in Mondovi but is now in Virginia, is getting the posters inducted into the Green Bay Hall of Fame Wednesday.

He got so many autographs that he had to make two posters to fit them all. Winsand got every single person, including the players, coaches, medical staff and even equipment people in the picture to sign it.

His good friend Mike Lind tells us Winsand just finished getting the signatures a couple months ago. "November 2012 I think there were two or three guys that were on the Seattle coaching staff and LeRoy Butler was the first in 1997. He found out that over a half a million people go through the Packers Hall of Fame so he thought that's the place to put it."

Winsand told us over the phone Tuesday, "The other comment that almost everybody makes, especially the further I went into this thing, is that they were really honored that I took the time to include them and see this thing through to the end so it's just been a pretty incredible ride through this whole process."
