Odell Beckham Jr. may not be ready for the Hall of Fame after just nine games, but his jersey is.

The blue No. 13 shirt that he wore when he made his famous one-handed catch against the Cowboys just over two weeks ago was put on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, on Monday afternoon. It is encased next to a pair of Russell Wilson's cleats.

The Catch made Beckham a celebrity, but he's also putting up unprecedented numbers for a rookie receiver. He is the first rookie in NFL history to record at least 90 receiving yards in six consecutive games, and if he does it in the Giants' final three games he will tie the record set by the Cowboys' Michael Irvin in 1995. Despite missing four games earlier this season (including the preseason Hall of Fame Game in early August) with a hamstring injury, Beckham ranks 29th in the NFL in receptions (59) and 24th in receiving yardage (829). His 92.1 receiving yards per game is seventh in the league.
