With an unproven rookie like Tim Tebow charging $160 for the privilege of having his signature placed on the item of your choice, a guy like Brett Favre easily can charge that much, and more.
And so he is.
A group called Radtke Sports is marketing a one-day signing event with Favre, via Brad Biggs of NFP. On July 15, he’ll sign 100 items. But there will be no event at which Favre will shake hands and/or smile for the camera. Instead, all items must be sent in advance, with payment up front.
And if your item isn’t one of the first 100 items received, you’ll be S.O.L. Or, more accurately, S.O.F. (But at least you’ll get your money back.)
The charge is $400 for a full-size helmet, $400 for a jersey, $250 for a football, $175 for a mini-helmet, large photos for $250, smaller photos for $175.
Inscriptions will cost an extra $100. (“Dear Joe, with your money, I’ll be buying new tires for my tractor.”)
Frankly, we think Brett should do more than 100 items. That way, he’ll be able to add carpal tunnel syndrome to his 2010 list of built-in excuses in the event of failure.
