Dick Butkus Signed Chicago Bears Blaze Mini Helmet
This is a Chicago Bears Blaze mini helmet which was personally autographed by Dick Butkus. This includes a certificate of authenticity from James Spence Authentication (JSA) and Latitude Sports Marketing.
Butkus is credited with having defined the middle linebacker position, and is still viewed as the "gold standard by which other middle linebackers are measured." He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1979, and his No. 51 jersey is retired by the Bears. Following his playing career, Butkus began careers in acting, sports commentary, and celebrity endorsement. He is active in philanthropy through the Butkus Foundation, which manages various charitable causes.
