Mike Ditka is again bringing in some out-of-town guests for an autograph session later this month.
Over 40 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame will participate in the 7th Annual Mike Ditka Hall of Fame Autograph Show benefiting Misericordia Heart of Mercy and the Mike Ditka Hall of Fame Players Assistance Trust later this month.
The event will be held on Sunday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, Illinois.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit retired NFL players in need of medical or other financial assistance. Ditka has been an active lobbyist on behalf of his former colleagues.
There is a $10 admission fee to the show with autograph guests including former Ditka teammate Gale Sayers, Paul Hornung, Deacon Jones, Ted Hendricks, Harry Carson, Lem Barney, Chuck Bednarik and 2007 enshrinee Roger Wehrli. Most autograph tickets are $20-40 each and mail orders are being accepted.
