Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH

We took a day trip on a hot Saturday to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. We had driven past it on our route from the RV Park in NC to PA. So knew we had to go at least once while we were in the area. We had been to Akron to the Camping World Store before. But the first time it had snowed on us and then we did a last minute Rush trip for a new clothes dryer. So we planned to go a day when we could spend as much time as needed.

It was fairly crowded, but we went early enough that we saw everything without spending too much at the NFL Store. Then we drove a few Exits north for a nice lunch. The displays were extensive and David had plenty of opportunities to relive Football history. The Museum is divided in sections. Am not sure which part I enjoyed most, Early Football memorabillia, Helmet displays or the entire roomful of Bronze Busts. Many of the busts looked lifesize. Others looked much smaller than normal.

The case full of Superbowl rings was massive. Some quite gaudy and some quite attractive. Sure were lots of diamonds.
Just one of the hundreds of rings.
