The Patriots Hall of Fame presented by Raytheon has built an extensive artifact collection thanks to fan and alumni contributions as well as The Hall’s collection efforts.
Many alumni have contributed or loaned items so that Hall guests could walk back through time and recall moments from throughout team history. From newspapers and game programs to uniform jerseys and footballs to trophies and awards to banners and rings, The Hall’s collection is one any fan will enjoy and also allows historians to look back to the team’s history from its fledgling early times to its more recent dynastic days.
Some of the unique items donated or loaned to The Hall include a 1932 Providence Steam Roller uniform, the team’s 1963 American Football League Eastern Division championship banner (which apparently was stolen from Fenway Park in 1964), the Pro Football Hall of Fame plaster bust given to John Hannah, Gino Cappelletti’s kicking cleats and so much more.
Since opening in 2008, The Hall also has had the ability to acquire modern day historical items quickly. From Tom Brady’s 400th touchdown pass football and his Super Bowl XLIX jersey (retrieved from Mexico) to the sweatshirt Bill Belichick wore during his 250th career win to James White’s Super Bowl LI uniform, The Hall works to keep your experience up to the minute.
