CANTON, Ohio - As Canton prepared for a crush of football fans, two colors were among the most prominent washing over its most famous building. Packer fans were out in force at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, matching the team's prominence in the Hall's archives.
"I'll be like, 'oh, look, there's Clay Matthews,'" said Darboy's Carrie MacDonald of the fans in jerseys she saw walking around the Hall. "'There's Aaron Rodgers.'"
The Packers fans were largely not from Wisconsin. Some came from just down the road in Canton; others shipping their allegiances from across the nation.
"There's a lot of Packers fans all over the country," said John Dwyer, part of a tour group from Pennsylvania.
The Hall of Fame displayed plenty of Packers artifacts, though according to collections curator Jason Aiken, only about 5% of the Hall's collection is on display at any time.
"We get quite a few Green Bay fans," said Aiken, noting Packer backers were up there with the Steelers as the most prevelant fanbases throughout the year at the Hall.
Among the artifacts stored in the Hall's underbelly, away from public view, are Tony Canadeo's helmet, Clark Hinkle's college jacket and the jacket Mike McCarthy wore on the sideline during Super Bowl XLV.
