Joe Hammond was a big, rugged ruckman and defender with a good pair of hands and plenty of ability.
He came from Broadford where he started in 1922 and was Essendon's vice-captain between 1930 and 1932.
Hammond played in the interstate Carnival in 1927 and against NSW in 1928.
He was Essendon's second top Brownlow medal vote scorer in 1931 and as well, won the Club's most serviceable player award in 1929.
Hammond suffered a serious groin injury early in 1932, after being again chosen in the State side, and it ended his football career.
His brother, Bob, played 34 games for Hawthorn (1927-1928, 1931-1933) and one game for St Kilda (1933).
Joe Hammond worked for the James Moore Timber Yard before he retired in 1969.
He died on Christmas Day, 1990.
