CFL Hall of Fame Sale

The CFL’s Hall of Fame, a fixture in downtown Hamilton beside city hall for decades, is moving to Tim Hortons Field. But not everything held in the old building is going, and football fans had a chance Sunday to purchase items that won’t be making the trip. Posters, pictures, programs, pennants – just a few of the treasures up for grabs. Here’s a look. – Barry Gray
