Legends of Rodeo Collection

Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, Colorado Springs, Colorado

American Rodeo legend, Casey Tibbs first saw the work of sculptor, Edd Hayes at the 1984 National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He was so impressed, he immediately commissioned Hayes to create a bronze sculpture of himself in action on a saddle bronc.

The resulting sculpture of Casey riding the famous Beutler Bros. bronc, Necktie, was approved by Casey and also signed in the clay by him before casting. In the summer of 1985, this bronze, titled, "Cap and Necktie" became the impetus for a series of other bronze 'action portraits' which continues on today. A collection of Rodeo bronze sculpture unequaled, before that time or since.

The uniqueness of The Legends of Rodeo Collection of bronzes is that each sculpture is not only of an inductee into The ProRodeo Hall of Fame, but each sculpture, before casting, is approved by and also signed by the person or persons depicted in each sculpture. The series includes, Casey Tibbs, Harry Tompkins, Eddy Akridge, Jack Buschbom, Dean Oliver, Jim Shoulders, Big Jim Bynum, Clark McEntire, Ben Johnson and Joe Crow, Leo Camarillo and Tee Woolman. Roy Cooper will be coming soon.

In the spring of 1989 the small bronze of Casey Tibbs was enlarged to over life-size, cast in bronze and installed on a ten foot tall pedestal. "The Champ" is the centerpiece and official logo for The Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colorado. At the unveiling, Casey's first words to the crowd was, "Thank you Edd Hayes for making me look good, Hell I was good!"

In August 1996, Susan and Leroy Littlefield purchased two complete collections of The Legends of Rodeo by Edd Hayes and then donated one collection to The ProRodeo Hall of Fame. This collection is on permanent view in the 'Hall of Honor.'

In August of 2000, a half life-size version of "Big Jim Bynum" was installed in the sculpture garden at The ProRodeo Hall of Fame.
