There is so much, that only five percent of the artifacts are on display at the museum. As a part of our five-part series leading up to Adam Vinatieri’s record-attempt this Sunday to set the all time points record, HOF Collections Curator Jason Aikens pulls back the curtain on some of the great kicking treasures at the Hall:

  • Morten Andersen shoe worn in 2007 season (breaking the NFL scoring record)
  • Adam Vinatieri practice kicking tee
  • Gary Anderson jersey
  • George Blanda football from 1971 when he broke the NFL scoring record
  • Lou Groza helmet and kicking shoes
  • Matt Prater kicking shoes worn during longest FG kick (64 yards)

Jason Aikens will be on site in Indianapolis to receive the record-setting game ball and Vinatieri’s jersey after the game. You can watch coverage of it on all HOF social platforms: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@ProFootballHOF).
