Officials at Donruss announced today that former Chicago Bears' player and coach, Mike Ditka, will be signing free autographs this Friday at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago. Donruss will be handing out 200 coupons throughout the week allowing collectors the chance to meet the Hall of Famer and get a signature.
"We are excited that Donruss will be bringing one of the most recognizable names in Chicago sports history to the National," Donruss Football Brand Manager Ben Ecklar said. "The autographs will be free to collectors, so that should make Iron Mike the most popular autograph guest of the week."
Donruss will award the autograph coupons to collectors via their prize wheel. The prize for landing on a designated spot on the 10' wheel will be a Mike Ditka autograph coupon. Those lucky enough to win will bring the coupon to the Donruss booth on Friday, August 1 at noon to meet the legendary player and coach. He will then sign an 8" x 10" photograph produced exclusively by Donruss for the event. No other items will be signed and notations will not be allowed.
