The rarity of autographed sports memorabilia can be traced to Michael Jordan, the first superstar to grant autographs only to those who could answer his riddles. Touch something an athlete also touched with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of sports memorabilia at Fiterman Sports Group in Pearland. Groupon customers will also receive 12 baseball cards with their purchase.
Fiterman Sports Group hosts hundreds of authentic game balls, jerseys, and photographs that have been used by professional athletes to practice their penmanship. Customers can adopt 8”x10” photos autographed by athletes such as Bill Cartwright ($29.99) and J.R. Richard ($19.99) and crop them into family portraits before bonding with flawless Sports Illustrated back issues featuring Patrick Ewing ($14.99) and Lou Brock ($19.99). Spherical signature surfaces include an official MLB ball signed by Prince Fielder ($49.99) and a basketball signed by Carl Landry ($49.99), both of which inspire young athletes to learn how to write with really sweaty palms. The company proudly co-represents more than 40 professional athletes, including Hall of Fame legends Joe Montana and Earl Campbell, and guarantees all of their items will pass any third-party authentication checks.
Fiterman Sports Group frequently hosts private signings, during which customers will not be able to use their Groupons. Customers may call in advance or consult the website for available store hours.
