Father's Day Special at HOF

In recognition of fathers everywhere, the Pro Football Hall of Fame has decided to admit all dads accompanied by a son or daughter on Father’s Day, this Sunday (June 15) free of charge. More>>>

By the numbers…

Class of 2003 enshrinee Elvin Bethea is just the second member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame to wear #65.

Bethea, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, wore the jersey number throughout his storied 16-season NFL career with the Houston Oilers from 1968-1983.

The only other Hall of Famer to have #65 was long-time Rams' guard Tom Mack.

New enshrinement hall nearly complete

The Pro Football Hall of Fame's $1.67 million renovation of the enshrinement gallery is in its final stages.

The use of bronze portrait busts, often cited as something that separates the Pro Football Hall of Fame from other sports museums, will continue. The enshrinees’ bronze likenesses will be grouped together by class and presented chronologically, conveying a sense of time and history.

Strategically located in the center of the new gallery will be several interactive kiosks that will bring each Hall of Fame member to life. The kiosks will make available a vast and varied database of information on each Hall of Fame member. Included will be film footage, photos, mural art, and biographical information. Designed with state-of-the-art touch-screen technology, the multi-media production will be presented on high-definition flat plasma screens for an optimum visitor experience.

Call from the Hall
Father's Day is fast approaching, and NFL Auctions has come up with five great gift ideas. Give your father the gift of a "call from the Hall!"

The winning bids will receive a 15-minute phone conversation from one of five Hall of Famers. More>>>
