The Philadelphia Eagles will pay homage to two greats during a Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants this season. Brian Westbrook and Maxie Baughan will be honored as the franchise's 2015 Hall of Fame class before the divisional matchup on October 19.
Baughan played 12 seasons in the NFL between 1960 and 1970, making a comeback in 1974 before retiring that year. He spent his first six season with the Eagles and was elected to five Pro Bowls during his time in the City of Brotherly Love. In his rookie season, he was awarded All-Pro honors in addition to his Pro Bowl selection. Westbrook was a two-time Pro Bowler and is the Eagles’ all-time leader in total yards from the scrimmage. Playing eight of his nine NFL season in Philadelphia, he is one of just six players in league history with more than 30 rushing touchdowns and 30 receiving touchdowns.
The announcement hasn’t seemed to make much of an impact on the secondary market, however, as Eagles vs Giants tickets have increased slightly since the ceremony was made official on Tuesday. According to TicketIQ tickets to the October 19 game are currently averaging $248.47, up just 2.3% from Tuesday’s average of $242.83. The cheapest available ticket to the game is now $102.
