Patriot Len St. Jean TTM


Patriot Great Len "Boston Strong Boy" St. Jean signed these 1970 and 1972 Topps cards in just 8 days from his home in Stoughton, MA.

St. Jean played for the Boston/New England Patriots from 1964-1973.

I asked Mr. St. Jean what he enjoyed most about playing for the Patriots.
"The fans and my teammates, plus I love the City of Boston."

His whole career was with the Pats and I think he was a fan favorite.
He was named to the Boston Patriots 1960s All-Decade Team.

I asked what impact his football career had on his health.
"It took a serious toll."

He was once considered one of the strongest offensive linemen in pro football.
I imagine these guys wake up sore everyday, always in pain.

I wondered how he spent his time now.
"Volunteer work for the Patriots, etc."

But after all that he still gives back.
What a great guy.
