The Kansas City Chiefs have a plethora of activities going on for their 50th anniversary as a team, and Arrowhead Stadium in particular has been a busy work site on several fronts. From a new art project to an updated Hall of Honor, the Chiefs are working overtime to get everything ready. The new Chiefs Hall of Honor will be available soon for fans to see a number of new exhibits from an archived history about racial barriers in the game being broken to the 50-year journey of the team so far.
Also included are several individual items from some of the greatest players in Chiefs history including holdout wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and legends like E.J. Holub. Here's a full rundown from the team's release:
- Jesse Richardson of the Boston Patriots’ helmet with no facemask. Richardson was the last full-time pro to play without a facemask.
- Jan Stenerud’s AFL All-Star jersey from 1970, the final game in AFL history. White with sewn numbers, the jersey contains AFL patches on each sleeve, the only time in the history of the AFL All-Star game that this style was used.
- Hank Stram’s stop watch with his name in tape on back.
- A badly worn Chiefs helmet belonging to the late Jerry Mays.
- Mo Moorman’s home Chiefs jersey.
- EJ Holub’s worn Chiefs helmet. While helmets were routinely re-conditioned, Chiefs players asked that they remain in their worn condition prior to the playing of Super Bowl IV to give the appearance of a tested team.
