Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame
Oct. 6, 2012 - Jan. 6, 2013
This year, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To mark the milestone, the Hall of Fame is working with the History Center to create a major exhibition focusing on the history of pro football, from its humble beginnings in 1892 to its rise as one of the world’s most beloved sports.
Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame will make its world premiere at the History Center from Oct. 6, 2012 through Jan. 6, 2013 before embarking on a national traveling tour. When it debuts this fall, Gridiron Glory will be the most comprehensive traveling exhibit ever created on America’s most popular sport.
Included in the exhibit are more than 200 football artifacts, rare photos, and one-of-a-kind documents from the Pro Football Hall of Fame collections, many of which have never been seen outside of the Hall of Fame.
Gridiron Glory will also feature unique items from Hall of Steelers, including:
- Art Rooney’s elevator console from the “Immaculate Reception”
- Franco Harris’ cleats from his legendary career
- Joe Greene’s game-used helmet
- Lynn Swann’s 1978 Monday Night Football game ball
- Jack Lambert’s jersey from his final season
