Lot 1799: 1963 Hall of Fame Dedication Signed Program
Dedication Program from the opening of the Pro Football Hall of Fame on September 7, 1963, signed by eleven of the original seventeen inductees. The vintage ball-point autographs were obtained that day by an NFL insider, and the program is only lacking George Preston Marshall from the twelve possible signers who were alive in 1963. Check out the names present: Sammy Baugh, Earl "Dutch" Clark, Red Grange, George Halas, Mel Hein, Cal Hubbard, Don Hutson, Curly Lambeau, John "Blood" McNally, Bronko Nagurski and Ernie Nevers. Jimmy Conzelman, a 1964 Inductee, also signed the program. Near Mint condition overall. We have NEVER seen another one of these Dedication Programs signed by this stellar group, and it will probably be a while before another surfaces.
