Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
There is no question that football is indeed America's most popular sport, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame's 50th Anniversary book totally captures our passion for the game.
Having opened its doors in Canton, Ohio on September 7, 1963, the Hall will be celebrating its 50th anniversary year from 2012 to 2013, commencing with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival, a ten-day period in early August which culminates in the annual Hall of Fame Game. The Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival draws close to a million fans each year.

The book has been crafted by Joe Horrigan, the Hall's VP of Communications/Exhibits, along with John Thorn, creator of "Total Football," and the end result is a beautifully bound keepsake for any serious football fan.
The "50th Anniversary Book "features essays by football writers, broadcasters, and celebrated players. Every living Hall of Famer will contribute a commentary on some aspect of the game and its history; each deceased member will be represented in a sidebar or pullout quote. In addition, the book features rarely seen photos and artifacts of some of the Hall's greatest treasures.

Review by Library Journal (2012-08-01)

Horrigan (vice president, communications & exhibits, Pro Football Hall of Fame) and Thorn (Total Football) have compiled this 50th-anniversary commemoration of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. A beautifully laid out volume, it combines essays, quotes and photographs to recount the history of the game and the hall itself. Pictured in both black-and-white and color are well over 100 artifacts of the hall's collection, including programs, ticket stubs, contracts, official letters, play diagrams, advertisements, uniforms, equipment, and trophies. The 11 essays are written by prominent journalists, historians, and broadcasters, and are tied to each decade of pro football. Quotes from every one of the Hall's 267 members augment the photos and the text.

Verdict: While the book does not aim to be an encyclopedic history of the game, it is informative, enjoyable, and thorough in its own way. Any fan would enjoy paging through this coffee-table volume.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for the football lover! My 10yo boy is really getting into football as a player and a spectator both live (college) and televised (pro). I love that he is learning not just about the current players but the legends as well! He is glued to this book and likes to share what he's learned with friends and other football fans. 11/15/2013
