Its' an interesting exercise in "provenance" to claim a DEC card came from a particular router that was used in a particular early system. YOur "proof" I imagine would be, if you could identify the Ethernet address of the card, and show an Ethernet address for one of those Fuzzball routers. Where and how that E-address is documented, you'll have to determine.
The router "box" or cabinet with a U of D sticker and other identifying information, that would be in my causal opinion a better "provenance".
I'm not calling this stuff out to be clever, I'm making a point and helping you establish your "claim".
