The Pro Football Hall of Fame has partnered with the Franklin Mint to create a new line of collectible, miniature versions of the iconic Hall of Fame bronze busts.
The limited edition Replica Mini Bronze Busts line debuted at the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, this August, with a starting lineup of five football greats–Joe
Montana, Walter Payton, Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw and Emmitt Smith.
New mini busts will be released each year; first up in early 2016 will be a mini bust of legendary running back Jerome Bettis.
"We are honored the Pro Football Hall of Fame has chosen to partner with the Franklin Mint," says Colin Hagen, vice president, The Franklin Mint. "With our collective mission to deliver quality, integrity and creativity, for the first time ever, fans can now own the jewel of the Hall of Fame with a replica of their iconic bronze busts.”
The mini busts are created in collaboration with manufacturer Icon Crystals and measure 5-inches high. The current collection is available at the Hall of Fame store and website as well as Franklin Mint's website.
“The limited edition Replica Mini Bronze Busts are spectacular and uniquely rare collectibles,” says Steve Strawbridge, senior vice president, merchandising and licensing, Pro Football Hall of Fame. “The Hall is thrilled to work with the Franklin Mint to provide all football fans the opportunity to purchase such an exceptional item that truly encapsulates the Hall’s Mission to 'Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values and Celebrate Excellence Everywhere.'”
