Report: Johnny Manziel Signed 4400 Autographs for 3 Brokers in 3 States
The floodgates are open and more people are coming forward to speak (anonymously at this point) about Johnny Football signing items. ESPN’s Outside the Lines reports:
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel signed autographs and memorabilia for dealers in two additional sessions — one in South Florida after the Discover BCS National Championship Game in early January; the other in late January in Houston, sources have told “Outside the Lines.”
Florida-based autograph dealer Kevin Freistat backed and helped organize the additional two sessions, sources with knowledge of the events said. The sessions add to the other four signings reported last week by “Outside the Lines.”
Freistat runs an autograph company out of Florida called KLF Sports and has exclusive deals with Sugar Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali, Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez and Chipper Jones. Sources told “Outside the Lines” the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback signed at least 1,500 items in each of the two sessions.
For those of you keeping score at home, we now are up to six signings in three months with Johnny Football. If he signed his name 4400 times, that whole I was just doing it to be nice line goes out the window. Especially when he said himself that he hates signing autographs. The NCAA still has nothing for now since there is no proof of him taking money but like I said before, there seems to be no shortage of people waiting to spill the beans on this kid.
