HOF Artifact of the Week


This week's featured artifact is a Super Bowl XXXIX mini helmet autographed by Paul McCartney who was the featured Super Bowl Halftime Show performer for that year’s game in Jacksonville, Florida.

Typically musicians that perform at the Super Bowl, sign footballs for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Paul McCartney, who is a long-time advocate for the humane treatment of animals, did not want to sign a football that is made of cowhide leather. However, being a football fan he gladly signed a synthetic plastic mini-helmet for the Hall.

Our weekly artifacts and other unique items are featured daily in our docent presentations for visitors of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Plan your visit to the Hall to learn more about the collection in our archives.
