Walter Payton Signed Piece$250
It is hard to argue with the theme of this piece - "A Legend Among Us." Walter Payton combined a feel-good back story, a truly admirable work ethic, and an infectious joy for playing the game, with good, clean, role-model qualities on and off the field. That, together with Walter's mind-boggling accomplishments and hard-to-believe highlight reel, resulted in a player whose autographed memorabilia is among the most coveted.

Joe Maddon Signed Piece$380
When you ask most championship organizations to pinpoint the turning point in their development into world champs, they will invariably point to the addition of a key player or two. Cubs fans know that the addition of Joe Maddon as the skipper of the Cubs was possibly the true moment when the Cubs were on the march to break the century-plus drought on the North side. As a result, there could not be a more fitting memento of this past season than this oversized photo of Joe hoisting the World Series trophy, especially since it contains the commemorative World Series patch and the ever-so-rare autograph of the Cubs manager himself. Includes certificate of authenticity.

Michael Jordan is one of those players in sports who you know is great as you witness his career unfold, but you can't help but feel you don't appreciate his historic accomplishments until after he has retired.

Whenever he achieves that true recognition, you'll be able to not only tell your grandchildren you saw him play, but you'll also be able to show them this lasting piece of memorabilia, which can be passed down through the family.

Butkus Signed Bears Jersey$525
Whoever coined the term "Monsters of the Midway" undoubtedly had Dick Butkus foremost in their mind. From his college career at Illinois until his enshrinement in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979, Butkus was regarded as one of the most intimidating linebackers ever to grace the gridiron, being named the most feared tackler of all time by NFL.com in 2009.
