Gridiron Glory artifacts
The rarest document in the Hall of Fame's collection is being displayed outside of Canton for the first time. This is the accounting ledger from a game played in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Nov. 12, 1892. It serves as proof of the first paid football player and hence nicknamed pro football's "birth certificate."
