60 years ago today


Recommended Posts

Posted on the Pro Football Hall of Fame FB page.

On Sept. 7, 1963, 60 years ago today, the Pro Football Hall of Fame opened its doors for the first time.
Although much of the sport, its history and certainly the area around the Hall have evolved over the past six decades, it remains a shrine to the sport and a Canton landmark.

Pro Football Hall of Fame in the 1960s.

I first visited the Hall of Fame in the spring of 1994. Then later in 2001 when Miggle Toys held their Electric Football Convention and Super Bowl Tournament in the HOF. Several other electric football tournaments have been held in the HOF over the years.

Here's an article link:

When I was working for the museum exhibit company, 1220 Exhibits. I had the opportunity to go to the HOF and work on several of the exhibits there. We did the complete remodel of the hall in 2011. 

One of my goals for the National Electric Football Game Museum is to get a permanent exhibit of electric football into the HOF.

The NFL will need to build a whole new wing. LOL 😃

Considering Tudor was discussed at the foundational meeting of NFL Enterprises and later Larry Kent, VP of NFL Enterprises called Norman SAS with an offer, I would think the NFL is breaking ground for the new EF wing as I write this. LOL 😃

Enjoy the Journey    T43  🏈♾️
