The Hall of Fame Ring of Excellence is one of three iconic symbols that represent an individual’s enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the most exclusive club in the world. Each Hall of Famer receives their Hall of Fame Gold Jacket at the Enshrinees’ Gold Jacket Dinner on the Thursday night prior to the Enshrinement ceremony in Canton. The Bronzed Bust is unveiled during the Enshrinement Ceremony held inside Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and then placed permanently on display in the Hall of Fame Gallery.
Brown established himself as one of the greatest receivers of all-time during his 17-season NFL career. He was named first-team All-AFC six times – once as a kick returner, once as a punt returner, and four times at wide receiver. He was also named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s. The Raiders’ legend retired as the third all-time leading receiver with 1,094 receptions for 14,934 yards, and 100 touchdowns. At the time he also ranked fifth in career combined net yardage with 19,682 yards.
Brown along with the rest of the Class of 2015 – Jerome Bettis, Charles Haley, Bill Polian, Junior Seau, Will Shields, Mick Tingelhoff and Ron Wolf -- will be formally enshrined into the Hall of Fame on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. A limited number of ticket packages for the 2015 Enshrinement Weekend are still available.
