Better Bring Your Wallet if You Want Johnny Manziel’s Autograph During Super Bowl Week
Johnny Manziel announced that he will be signing autographs in two memorabilia shops at Texas malls during Super Bowl week. The former Browns’ QB will hit up a mall in Katy for an hour Feb. 2, and then again the next day in Woodland — but you better bring some cash.
The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner is charging $99 for any item signed, $99 to take a professional photo with Manziel and $50 for a selfie or any picture taken with a fan’s phone — he will also will add inscriptions, including “Johnny Football,” for $29.
The manager of the stores, Cynthia Gaytan said she has received a lot interest in the signing.
“We’ve gotten calls from younger fans, A&M fans and people who are Heisman Trophy collectors,” Gaytan said of Manziel, the former Texas legend.
Manziel has become some what of a cult figure since being selected by Cleveland with the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft. He was electric and exuberant in college, both on and off the field which didn’t really translate into the NFL after he was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
He was released by Cleveland in the 2016 season.
