NFL Hall of Famers Marcus Allen and Warren Moon unveiled the HoF’s first-ever exhibit, “Score! Be the Legend,” on Thursday afternoon at the Luxor to commemorate its 50th anniversary, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was onsite for the presentation.
Donoghue reports that the exhibit will be 10,000 square feet of sports interactive play to open in 30 days and will include Allen’s 1981 Heisman Trophy, his HoF bust, his six championship rings, his jerseys and his most treasured high school letter jacket, in which he inscribed “Mr. Marcus Allen” on the front because he knew that he was going to be one of the best ever.
On hand for Thursday’s announcement: Allen, Moon, NFL Hall of Fame President and CEO George Veras, Sam Weiser with the Luxor, Score! CEO Jim Beckmann, Score! Vice President Janay Smith and radio DJ and host Nick Bonsanto. The exhibit will be alongside the “Titanic” and “Bodies” exhibits.
