Evolution of the Football Jersey, a new exhibition featured at The Paul Brown Museum at the Massillon Museum, opened Saturday, July 27, and continues through January 12, 2020.

Guests will learn how jerseys and uniforms have changed with the implementation of rules and safety equipment and see artifacts including uniforms, helmets, and photographs.  

“The football jersey is an intricate piece of sporting equipment that has drastically changed over the years to combine safety with comfort and durability. It’s really quite fascinating to see how it evolved from the start of the sport to today,” says MassMu’s curator of football heritage, Bailey Yoder.
