Mike Ditka Doing More Donruss Signings
Earlier this week, I broke the news on Sports Card Forum that the wait was over for collectors who sent in redemption cards for 2005 Mike Ditka autograph cards.
After signing those cards three years later, Donruss is taking another step to please its collectors by giving away 200 coupons this week for an opportunity to get a free autograph from Ditka at the National Sports Collector's Convention. Ditka will be signing on Friday at the show which is nowhere else but Chicago, the city that made Ditka famous.
"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."
In order to get one of the coupons, collector's have to take their chance on the Donruss prize wheel at the Donruss booth. One space on the ten foot wheel will win collector's a coupon. To redeem the coupon for the autograph, collectors have to come to the Donruss booth again on Friday at noon.
Those holding coupons can get one of two 8X10 photos (pictured in this post) produced exclusively for Donruss to give away for this promotion. No personal items or inscriptions will be allowed for this signing.
