GALE SAYERS

Post by papafro on Thu May 16, 2013 11:10 am

Gale Sayers was admitted to the Mayo Clinic yesterday evening in Minnesota for treatment of a very serious health problem. He will be there for a while to undergo testing.

He may not be the most cordial in person, but he is definitely one of my all time favorite Chicago/NFL players. I wish I had a tape of his 6 TD game at Wrigley Field against the San Francisco 49ers.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Thank you for sharing that info. Last time I saw him he was really struggling to get through people and items. However, that was also the most friendly I have seen him. Getting up and posing for photos and laughing. Hope all goes well.

Word was then he had the early onset of dimensia. Someone did a private signing with him on one of the other sites and said if you didn't get him now it wasn't looking good. He really struggled with this signing he said. To bad, he was always freindly to me.

Too bad. I'm 1 for 2 with him TTM, without fees, but never met him. Hope he has a speedy recovery.

Has anyone ever confirmed this? He supposedly did a signing in Vegas today but someone on another site is promoting a signing with him as his final one ever possibly. Never saw anything on this media wise. Anyone know anything?

I heard from Minnesota collectors that there was a story leaked about Sayers at the Mayo Clinic. They were asking me what was up. Supposedly he was there less than a week. With new laws and regulations, it is very difficult for the press to release details on an individual's medical condition, citing privacy and legal issues.

Besides the aforementioned private signing, it appears that Mr. Sayers is signing in New Jersey next weekend. Interesting that the private signing was being called his last signing session, as per Mrs. Sayers.

Scheduled to appear at a signing. Curious to see what happens with his health and if he makes it.

When I did a send in with the private signing he had with the Bob Feller museum a while.ago they also confirmed he wasn't doing good at all.

That's why I wasn't too worried when I got my item back and he messed up the inscription. I was just happy to get his graph Again.

Something is not right with this. You tell people his wife has stated this is his final signing and within a week he's doing 2 public signings. Sounds like he's trying to boost his signing. I was going to a 16 with him, but now I don't know.

I'm sure people are aware of Main Line Autographs. They are the promoter that is advertising that Sayers' wife was saying that Gale's signing with Main Line was to be his last signing.

Last Labor Day at the Westin in Itasca, I had Sayers sign a 16 x 20 of him and Dick Butkus. He asked me for a copy of it, however he could not remember his home address; finally his agent wrote it down for him and gave it to me.

In October, I sent the 16 x 20 to the address that was provided.
About a week after I heard he was released from the Mayo Clinic, I received three signed 8 x 10s of Sayers; two b/w, one color.
Each photo had different inscriptions: Kansas Comet; ROY; HOF.
I am thinking that this was a swap for the image that I sent him. To receive these photos after hearing he was ill was very eerie.
