Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Honor gets two new exhibits

The KC Chiefs Hall of Honor will be adding old AFL helmets as well as patches worn in Chiefs history.

I talked with some Buffalo Bills fans recently about what I liked about the renovation of Arrowhead Stadium. With Buffalo possibly looking for a new stadium, those Bills fans wanted to know some of the things the Chiefs did in their renovation four years ago.

One of the things I mentioned was the Hall of Honor, which is an area in the stadium that has lots and lots of Chiefs history, including old jerseys, newspaper clippings and all kinds of other historical Chiefs items.

Chiefs team historian Bob Moore announced today that there will be two new exhibits to run in the Hall of Honor next season and into 201 -- one on AFL helmets and another on the Chiefs uniform patches.

Visitors will see for the first time anywhere a comprehensive history of helmets worn by the eight original American Football League teams down through the years. Private collections from across the country contributed to the exhibition which took more than two years to gather.

The Chiefs logo has stayed mostly the same since the Arrowhead was brought on. You can see how much the Patriots helmets have changed over the years.

A further display highlighting the many patches worn on Kansas City Chiefs uniforms over the franchise's 54-year history will also have its debut at the Hall.

A good time to go see this would be at a preseason game so that you don't have to spend the whole time watching a preseason game.
