Beckham Jr.'s jersey from "The Catch" now in Hall of Fame

Posted Dec 9, 2014

The jersey that Odell Beckham Jr. wore while making his amazing catch against the Cowboys this season is on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame


Odell Beckham Jr. has made a habit of exchanging jerseys with opposing players after games.

It’s a sign of respect that he has already shared with, among others, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, and Colin Kaepernick, throughout his breakout rookie campaign.

But, recently, the ultimate trade partner came around looking for Beckham’s threads: the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

While becoming the first rookie in NFL history to record at least 90 receiving yards in six consecutive games, the first-round draft choice out of LSU took himself to another level with his one-handed touchdown grab against Dallas in Week 12. The play set off a million comments on social media from NBA superstars to Pulitzer Prize-winning authors and entered the conversation as the greatest catch ever made in the history of the sport.

Now the Hall has a piece of it.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame acquired the game-worn No. 13 jersey this week and put it on display for all visitors to see in Canton, Ohio.

The inscription reads:

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. had arguably one of the best catches of all time when he leaped in the air and hauled in a 43-yard touchdown pass with one hand against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12. This is the jersey he wore in the game on Nov. 23, 2014.

Beckham hasn’t stopped there, either.

While earning NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month honors for November, Beckham has 59 receptions for 829 yards and six touchdowns with three games left in his first professional season.
