Big money for Brett Favre's autograph

B.Favre-2.jpgWith 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.

    One day he’ll sign the tag on your big toe Florio.

    …and the Favre hate continues.

    Well played Florio…well played

  4. BigMikeSkinsFan says: May 19, 2010 11:52 AM

    Florio, Brett Favre has more talent in his carpal tunnel hands than you have EVER had.
    I hope one of these days you get “Chris Everret’d” by one of these players you talk so much trash on.

  5. Nate is Gay for Brady says: May 19, 2010 11:55 AM

    “Dear Joe, never quit (unless you think you can go to a better team)” Signed, Brett

  6. AlCortez says: May 19, 2010 11:57 AM

    More power to the guy!
    signed,
    Pete Rose

  7. Rhandywhite54 says: May 19, 2010 11:58 AM

    Hmm and to think I almost gave away my autographed Farve rookie card to charity.

  8. simple_simon1 says: May 19, 2010 11:58 AM

    No big deal. Just hope, as Tebow did, that the money raised is going to some sort of charity. So far, it doesn’t seem to be. If it isn’t, that’s pretty sad. Aside from that, go hard.

  9. Bud Grant says: May 19, 2010 12:00 PM

    You can get a better deal in the store on Favre’s web site.
    At least Favre has accomplished something. Let me know when Tebow gets on the field.

  10. Love_Boat_Scandal says: May 19, 2010 12:01 PM

    He’s washed up. And Vikes are moving to L.A.

  11. Catamount says: May 19, 2010 12:01 PM

    Athletes should be under no obligation to sign autographs. Since there are those who seek the autograph merely to profit on ebay, then the provider of the service should charge. I would like to see, however, the money earned go to charity in that player’s name. If I could sign my name a hundred times and donate $30,000 to St. Jude’s Children’s hospital, for example, I would.

  12. MuskyHunter2542 says: May 19, 2010 12:01 PM

    And in other news…
    Paul Allen – “Brett Favre goes back to pass he pumps, now he fires over the middle. Intercepted, I can’t believe what I’m seeing right now. It was intercepted by Tracy Porter, near side to the 40 and John Sullivan runs him down at the 47 yard line. You’ve got to be kidding me, I can’t believe what I just saw.”
    Other announcer – “Looking at that play he should have just held on to it Paul, he should’ve. He could’ve easily have gotten 5 or 6 yards if he would have just pulled that thing down and dove foreward.”
    Paul Allen – “But why do you even ponder passing, I mean you can take a knee and try a 56 yard field goal. This is not Detroit man! This is the Super Bowl.”

  13. Love_Boat_Scandal says: May 19, 2010 12:02 PM

    Will Bus Cook be posting photos online of his bruised hand after signing so many autographs?

  14. efangule says: May 19, 2010 12:03 PM

    Considering his signed jerseys and helmets and such go for that much on sleezeBay I have no problem with this. Why shouldn’t he get a cut of that?

  15. poman says: May 19, 2010 12:06 PM

    I have no problem with any player charging for their autographs. Most people trying to get them are looking to getting them to resell them to us fans for a big markup anyway.

  16. Empire Jones says: May 19, 2010 12:06 PM

    Hahahaha 400 items at $100 a pop i $40,000 an the marketing ompany must make a profit.
    Why stop at 100? You could do 400 at a time, bring in $160,000, and Favre could make 100 grand for a couple hour’s work.
    The again, by agreeing to do even 100, maybe he thinks he’s doing them a Favre.

  17. Chapnasty2 says: May 19, 2010 12:08 PM

    “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.”
    For every 1000 failing attempts at being sarcastic and funny there is one or two that hit the jackpot like this one. Well done.

  18. Gregjennings85 says: May 19, 2010 12:08 PM

    JUDAS lost the NFC Championship because of his widdel ankuw. Awwwww. Nobody gets beaten up like JUDAS in the NFL. Nobody.
    Awwwwww…..
    Poor guy…..

  19. JerkStore says: May 19, 2010 12:08 PM

    He doesn’t play for the money… he’d play for free… even though he most certainly does not, not even close.
    Come on folks, open up your wallets, he clearly needs the money.

  20. Profanity in ALL CAPS says: May 19, 2010 12:08 PM

    that is the best Florio hate comment i’ve read. well done.
    Florio. well, i just plain don’t like you.

  21. FLYBOY says: May 19, 2010 12:08 PM

    I’m hearing that he’s signing a photo of the mullet on Jared Allen’s nuts. It’s going for 700.00.
    I can’t believe the Vikings and NFL would allow this.
    Who’s the idiot who would buy this???

  22. Bzilla says: May 19, 2010 12:09 PM

    Favre isn’t perfect – he does have a bit of elitist in him somewhere – however there has NEVER been a player that’s more fun to watch play….EVER!! Irregardless of season finishes (there are 32 damn teams, afterall) he makes EVERY team he plays for MUCH better….PERIOD!

  23. cbrianwatkins says: May 19, 2010 12:10 PM

    Florio, i’d seriously watch yourself when you leave your cave, the cheapshots lately keep getting worse and worse, i mean, you can only hide behind your computer for so long

  24. Meat Tuperello says: May 19, 2010 12:11 PM

    Someone should send a sheet of paper that says Ted Thompson is a dumb ass and get him to sign it.

  25. medic406 says: May 19, 2010 12:14 PM

    I’d be willing to pay an extra hundred for him to scribe, “Dear Medic406, I do it for the drama..Brett Favre!”

  26. cedricbenson says: May 19, 2010 12:15 PM

    Any grown man who pays for an autograph is retarded. Id feel dumb even asking for one. Now, getting his autograph for your kids, thats fine.

  27. imongo says: May 19, 2010 12:15 PM

    Gotta love capitalism…..and if some dumbass decides to send his Viking/Jets/ Green Bay drawers to be signed, then he deserves the scorn of the masses.

  28. Krow says: May 19, 2010 12:15 PM

    How much money do these greed hounds need?

  29. hamspear says: May 19, 2010 12:19 PM

    Florio, what is your deal w/ Favre?? Even w/ carpal tunnel he could still choke you out and bury you in denim….

  30. va4favre says: May 19, 2010 12:23 PM

    If you read this in the Star Tribune, you will see that Favre does this every year. No news here, but just the mention of Brett’s name gets attention for the media.

  31. millionwatts says: May 19, 2010 12:25 PM

    even with carpal tunnel syndrome and a torn biceps tendon Favre could launch a football right from his backyard, off his tractor, that would fly all the way to PFT headquarters and knock you out for good.

  32. stadanko says: May 19, 2010 12:26 PM

    @hamspear
    I’m sure Florio knows as well as anyone how good Favre is at choking.

  33. Jack Burton says: May 19, 2010 12:33 PM

    Can he restore vision to the blind like Tebow? If not he’s charging too much.

  34. Green n' Gold says: May 19, 2010 12:37 PM

    C’mon people give the guy a break, he’s from the South. Dumbass redneck is probably broke. Supporting all his inbred relatives as taken an obvious financial toll on Brent.

  35. DonRSD says: May 19, 2010 12:38 PM

    “Inscriptions will cost an extra $100. (“Dear Joe, with your money, I’ll be buying new tires for my tractor.”)”
    thats hilarious Florio hahahaha

  36. chickenragnar the 3rd says: May 19, 2010 12:40 PM

    Ah yes, the usual suspects are out in droves.
    Seriously, you could post Favre walks across his living room and get at leat 70 hits from morons posting Favre hate.
    Florio. You have the goose that laid the golden egg.
    As long as there are favre stories, you will continue to get hits, the Packer fan tools play right into your hands.
    Of course, 99% of them are too stupid to realize that you make your money on site hits.

  37. samh says: May 19, 2010 12:42 PM

    Again, Tebow didn’t charge $160 for anything. Palm Beach Autographs set the price.

  38. Fan of Football says: May 19, 2010 12:53 PM

    Wow, what a big shocker. Florio pandering to the anti-Favre crowd again.
    yawn

  39. Beer Cheese Soup says: May 19, 2010 12:55 PM

    Florio should really just start waking up every morning, sitting at his computer with coffee, and posting a headline titled simply “Favre.”, and with no article whatsoever following it.
    He’d save himself plenty of time checking facts and protecting sources, and he would still have you stupid sheep lining up in droves to comment on it. It’d be a win-win scenario.

  40. pakrguru says: May 19, 2010 12:59 PM

    Favre has already stated the money raised during this event will be donated to charity. So please get off his back (for once). He’s an upstanding citizen in his beloved Minnesota community, and has given back in countless ways here in Green Bay, Mississippi, etc.
    Please make your check for these items and send it to the following address:
    The Human Fund
    101 Hillybilly Lane
    AnywhereIcangetmywayI’llplay, USA

    The only question is whether NFL retirement papers will be one of the 100 items presented in front of him.

    Lighten up everyone. Favre is fundraising to pay for ankle surgery. The faster he gets it, the sooner he can un-retire and be back on the field throwing interceptions. LOL

  48. JimmySmith says: May 19, 2010 1:33 PM

    When the Viking fans wouldn’t even buy tickets, how does BrINT expect them to cough up the money to pay for his autograph?
    Maybe Tracy Porter will send in a football and have BrINT inscribe; One way ticket to the Superbowl, courtesy of the NFL’s leading INT machine. AD sends his regrets, that is, he regrets he can’t hold on to the football. And Col Klink still can’t count to 11.

  49. spudz says: May 19, 2010 1:43 PM

    Charging money for an autograph by ANY athlete is rediculous unless the intent is to donate ALL of the money to charity.
    This guy should just go away….the Vikes dont need him and neither does the NFL

  50. philwauke says: May 19, 2010 1:53 PM

  51. Danwhitmer says: May 19, 2010 1:54 PM

    Guess they are not making enough money as it is. Need to take hundreds of dollars from hard working people just to sign something. We already pay for there salaries by showing up to games, what else do they want ?

  52. Pervy Harvin says: May 19, 2010 1:59 PM

    I heard Aaron Rodgers,always wanting to be like Favre, is selling his own self to the loving packer fans. Starting in June, Rodgers will be selling 3 freshly jerked off in athletic socks to the adoring fans each day. Thats a total of 90 socks or 3 spank sessions a day. Prices run 100 for the first sock of the day,50 and then 20 for the 3rd. Packer fans pay more for bigger loads…..

  53. sand0 says: May 19, 2010 2:03 PM

    Being a Vikings fan, I’ve only followed Favre since he has openly wanted to play here. So I don’t know the full history per say.
    I see Florio all the time mentioning how Favre needs all these built in excuses. I realize having the torn biceps injury for the Jets was used as an excuse but that seems to be pretty valid.
    Is this just simple patronizing towards the Favre haters to generate hits? Or does he have a history of excuse making that predates me paying any attention to him?
    Just seems kind of juvenile and kiddie to make lame and uncreative digs at someone. It is like Florio is a Packer fan, at least in terms of maturity level and creativity.

  54. bluestree says: May 19, 2010 2:05 PM

    I sent Bret a football to autograph in ’07. Big mistake, I never got it back. When I complained I was told it wasn’t Bret’s fault, the mailman turned the wrong way when he got to my street and the ball was intercepted by one of my neighbors.

  57. Stuart Scotts left eye says: May 19, 2010 2:11 PM

    I’ve just come to the realization that Favre will play forever.

  58. mixman34 says: May 19, 2010 2:20 PM

    Who cares we’re just USING the prior Pack Fan hero for a few victories. Once he’s done he’ll still retire a Packer doucher.
    And I must say it’s been fun watching the Packer Fans squirm.

  59. va4favre says: May 19, 2010 2:21 PM

    I am an admitted Favre homer, but what a riot that there are so many comments on a non-story. I have an excuse, but now you see why the useless media brings up his name for every lame reason. I have no idea if Florio is a Pack fan or not, but all of the media should kiss Brett’s butt since they will miss him when he’s gone. Tebow could be the Favre in waiting, but he is going to have to play fairly soon. Do you remember all of the sports covers with Brady Quinn right before and after he was drafted? Where are they now?

  60. Mel Kiper IV says: May 19, 2010 2:22 PM

    Sorry Mike, but you haven’t had a good scoop since the Chad Johnson thing – 4 years ago.

  61. robert ethen says: May 19, 2010 2:29 PM

    Fans not able to afford the prices can send their merchandise to Aaron Rodgers to sign.
    $4.00 for a helmet, $4.00 for a jersey, $2.50 for a football. If you don’t have the items, Aaron will provide them for customers at no additional cost. He has tons left over from his last event.
