George Hams (born 29 July 1928) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Collingwood in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Hams was at Collingwood during a strong period for the club and participated in ten finals matches. Two of those were Grand Finals, back to back in 1952 and 1953, with the latter resulting in a premiership. He was seen mostly in the back pocket and retired in 1956 to pursue an engineering career.[1]
