Kurt Warner, HOF?

After Kurt Warner was named starting QB, the Cardinals brain trust instituted a self-help course for the fumble-plagued Warner: Kurt had to cuddle with a pigskin every night while he slept. Result: a career revival for Warner and a first-ever Super Bowl appearance for the Cards. Maybe someday, when Warner’s giving his Hall of Fame acceptance speech, he’ll acknowledge that brilliant notion of sleeping with the enemy. While Warner can’t yet sign “HOF” (for “Hall of Fame”) at the end of his autographs, the value of a Warner signature has skyrocketed. It’ll cost from $90 to $120 a pop for Kurt to sign your memorabilia at the Phoenix Sports Card Show, but that didn’t stop the first hour of the Warner signing from selling out in less than 12 hours. A second shift has been added from 11 a.m. to noon; at presstime, about 100 autograph opportunities remained.
