O.J. has his day at Busch

It’s the final regular season home  game of the year…the Cardinals have beaten the San Francisco 49’ers by the score of 13-10…. and the second to last O.J. Simpson will ever play in the NFL…December 2nd, 1979…here he signs post-game for two of the Big Red Line…to this day, Simpson represents the only athletic figure whom, as an adult, I ever asked for an autograph…he signed my GameDay program in the locker room about a half hour after this pic was taken…after his mid 90’s and most recent troubles, I asked several memorabilia dealers around the country what the autograph might be worth…..the answer? absolutely nothing…na-da…zero…. the reason? it’s not a rare autograph..O.J., I was told, signed for everybody…..well, obviously…..
