We saw a TON of people there for obvious reasons with Emmitt Smith and Jerry Rice headlining the 2010 HOF Class.
We went into the HOF but it was so crowded we didn't get to see anywhere close to everything.
I went into the gift shop and Harry Carson and Jim Parker were signing autos outside the store. I went in to get a few programs and a HOF Mini but the lines took forever! By the time I got thru they were both gone so that was a little depressing. However it would not ruin my day.
I am working backwards here because the start of my day will never be equalled (Sports Wise) to me. I floated all day and night long.
Anyhow, I digress...
I walk into the vendors tent and as I was this guy was like HOLY S*&(! Putting on a signed Eric Dickerson jersey and I thought what a tool he was for wearing it.
Anyhow, I walk in the tent ant to my left I see Eris Dickerson standing behind a vendors table. This guy makes Limited Edition figures and was there signing his Canton Bulldogs figure. They are all limited to only 500 anyhow, but when you bought the figure, Eric Dickerson signed the bottom of it as well.
Here is me with the figure, the artist and HOFer Eric Dickerson with my signed figure:
Then, I walk down to the other end of the tent and there stands none other than Gale Sayers signing autographs for $10 and then $10 to have a photo taken with him with proceeds going to his foundation.
Here ya go:
Now to the start of my day:
I wanted to meet my childhood idol who was being inducted. I am sure you can figure out who that was from the pictures above, LOL.
I get my ticket and to the tent with about 10 minutes left after standing in line for about an hour and 40 minutes to get my ticket.
With no further introduction:

Me knocking one of my bucket list and meeting my All Time Favorite Player:
Here's a better picture of the signed figure.
Like I said, it was the greatest days I ever had in Sports.
I have a few Tim Tebow HOF exclusives that Panini had with purchases as well, but I have not had time to scan them.
