Pro Football Hall of Fame

From Academic Kids

The Pro Football Hall of Fame is actually the National Football League's Hall of Fame. The building opened in Canton, Ohio, United States, on September 7, 1963, with 17 charter inductees. Through 2004, all but one of the inductees played some part of their pro career in the NFL. That one was Buffalo Bills guard Billy Shaw, who played his entire career in the American Football League.

Inductees into the hall of fame are listed below. Each entry includes the year of induction and the span of time spent with the team. When a person significantly contributed to more than one club, he is listed repeatedly (e.g., George Blanda is listed with the Chicago Bears, Houston Oilers (now the Tennessee Titans) and Oakland Raiders).
