Alex Karras Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020 Exclusive T-shirt Now Available

CANTON, OH – Commemorating the late Greek-American Alex Karras and his election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2020, an exclusive, officially licensed t-shirt is now available for fans of all ages. Football legend Karras played defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions from 1958-1962 and 1964-1970.

Besides his extraordinary football career, Karras whose Greek roots are from Chios, went on to a successful acting career as well. He is perhaps best known for his role on the 1980s TV sitcom Webster, but his first major role was playing himself in the film Paper Lion (1968) based on the book by George Plimpton. He also appeared in the Mel Brooks’ comedy Blazing Saddles (1974).

The 100% cotton, short sleeve t-shirt features, on the front, a screen print design with the enshrinee’s name, the team name, along with the words PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME and a football with year of induction.

The shirt is available online through the Pro Football Hall of Fame website for $24.99. More information is available online: https://www.profootballhof.com/alex-karras-class-of-2020-elected-t-shirt/.

It should be noted that due to the global coronavirus pandemic and as a public health precaution, the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce rescheduled all events associated with the 2020 Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls for August 5-9, 2021.

According to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's website, more than 100 Gold Jackets (living Hall of Famers) return to the Hall of Fame each year to be a part of the Enshrinement Week Powered by Johnson Controls. Nowhere else are fans able to see and interact with as many Hall of Famers in one place at one time as in Canton during the annual celebration.

After a nearly three-month closure, as the entire nation locked down to slow the spread of the global coronavirus pandemic, the Pro Football Hall of Fame reopened its doors to the public on June 10 with health and safety precautions in place for visitors to the museum.
