Championship rings, Super Bowl trophies, game balls, his famous fedora and other memorabilia from the life and career of Tom Landry will go on exhibit this fall in Dallas.
The Dallas Historical Society worked with the Landry family to bring the story of the team’s first coach back into the public eye. Landry died of leukemia 20 years ago at age 75. He coached the Cowboys for 29 seasons, finishing with a winning record in 20 of them and bringing the franchise its first two Super Bowl victories.
The exhibit showcases Coach Landry’s time during the NFL and offers a larger perspective on his personal life.
The family turned over a huge group of items that showcase not only his success and innovation as a coach but also his life as one of Texas’ most popular citizens.
It’s possible some of them may go on loan elsewhere next year.
“As the custodian of this collection, when other museums want to see parts of it, for instance, if Canton wants to have this at the Hall of Fame, we’ll curate an exhibit for them,” Karl Chaio, Executive Director of the Historical Society told Fox 4 in Dallas.
