Gridiron Glory Exhibit Opens Saturday!

Calling all football fanatics who are totally psyched that 2014’s Superbowl will be held at MetLife Stadium:

Liberty Science Center premieres its Gridiron Glory: The Best of the Pro Football Hall of Fame exhibit this Saturday, September 28th. 

The exhibit tells a story of American sports, history and culture through various media. Relics, documents, photos, “rare artifacts,” interactive stations and a special section dedicated to our “Hometown Heroes”—the GIAnts and the Jets.

Highlights (taken from LSC‘s site) include:

  • The Tiffany’s-crafted Vince Lombardi Trophy
  • 1917 game ball used by Jim Thorpe
  • Items from the famed Immaculate Reception game
  • Jerseys worn by Mean Joe Green, Johnny Unitas, and many others

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without players. A full roster of former NY Giants and NY Jets will be stopping by to participate in science demonstrations and sports challenges with visitors. Plus, they’ll do a meet and greet afterward.

Full deets here.
