A couple of big-time former NFL stars helped a very limited number of autograph tickets sell out fast at the College Football Hall of Fame induction party.
The College Football Hall of Fame welcomed sixteen new members over the weekend, including former UCLA and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman.
The appearance of the popular former quarterback and several other recognizable names drew a crowd to the Hall’s ceremony in South Bend, Indiana.
This year’s class included Aikman, Roger Brown, Billy Cannon, Fred Dean, Jim
Dombrowski, Pat Fitzgerald, Wilber Marshall, Rueben Mayes, Randall
McDaniel, Don McPherson, Jay Novacek, Dave Parks, Dave Parks, Ron
Simmons, Rod Smith, Thurman Thomas, Arnold Tucker, John Cooper, Jim
Donnan and Lou Holtz.
The Hall held an autograph session that turned out to be a bargain. For $125, fans and collectors were entitled to one autograph from each player. Considering the price to land Aikman alone at card shows, it wasn’t a bad deal at all. Only 160 tickets were sold, though. No mail order and no phone orders were taken. Proceeds went to the Hall’s scholarship fund.
Those who got in line and landed a ticket for the event came away happy.
