One of the many historically significant pieces in the Hall of Fame's collection is the 1927 contract signed by Ignacio "Lou" Molinet. Molinet played nine games for the Frankford Yellowjackets that season and is credited with being the first Hispanic player in NFL history. On Monday afternoon four generations of the Molinet family visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The contract signed by Ignacio Molinet was pulled from the Hall's collection and shown to the family.

L-R: Damien Molinet, Kellie Molinet (holding Kaelyn Molinet), Elsie Molinet (niece of Ignacio Molinet), and Ernest Molinet.
