Pro FB Hall of Fame Day 1 (76)

CANTON, Ohio — Walking into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Museum in Canton, Ohio, for the first time is an awe-inspiring experience. Panini America officials were on-hand for the kickoff to the 50th Anniversary Enshrinement festivities and celebration Friday.

In what’s been viewed and discussed as one of the deepest Hall of Fame classes in years, this afternoon seven legends worthy of induction for their contributions will don the famed and hallowed gold jacket and take center stage for the 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony.  Most of the men on this list need no introduction, as their legacies on the field speak for itself. This year’s class includes Larry Allen, Cris Carter, Curley Culp, Jonathan Ogden , Bill Parcells, Dave Robinson, and Warren Sapp.

Later this afternoon, the Panini America Hall of Fame Grand Prize Winner Steven Keen and his son Aaron will embark upon their own Hall of Fame experiences with a fast-paced and memorable schedule. Also joining in the festivities is the Gridiron Football Hall of Fame Contest Winner, Derek Ashley and his guest, Thomas Konechne.
