Eddie DeBartolo begins preparations for his induction in Canton

The Pro Football Hall of Fame finally voted Eddie DeBartolo in after several years of waiting. The former San Francisco 49ers owner said he will likely be inducted by his oldest daughter when the ceremony takes place this August.

The Hall tweeted out some cool pictures earlier today. DeBartolo was meeting with them to get fitted for his gold jacket, and also get measurements for his bust. I have to say that after spending a couple days on radio row this week in San Francisco, the gold jacket is one of the underrated awesome things to see in person. The older Hall of Famers jackets might even be cooler because they look a little more worn. It's a combination of the gold jacket and the Hall of Fame patch that just look really awesome.
