Gales Sayers Begins Long-Term Appearance at Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas November 17th

Former Chicago Bears running back and Pro Football Hall of Fame member, Gale Sayers, will be appearing at the “Art of Music” memorabilia store at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dubbed “The Kansas Comet” while at the University of Kansas, Sayers was the fourth pick in Round One of the 1965 NFL Draft and played his entire career with the Bears. A four-time Pro Bowler, three-time Pro Bowl MVP, and a five-time All-Pro selection, Sayers played with the Bears for six seasons, retiring in 1971.

Sayers is a member of the NFL 1960s All-Decade and NFL 75th Anniversary teams. He is also ranked number 22 on The Sporting News’ list of The 100 Greatest Football Players. Sayers still holds the record for most touchdowns in a rookie season with 22 and for the highest career kickoff return average of 30.65. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977 and is still the youngest player ever to have been inducted into the Hall.

Beginning November 17th, Sayers will be appearing at the “Art of Music” store in the Mirage in conjunction with Las Vegas Live 365, a celebrity booking agency specializing in autograph “experiences.” For the next several months, Sayers will be appearing from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M., Tuesdays through Sundays, meeting fans and signing memorabilia. "There's a new "Mr. Vegas" coming to town and his name is Gale Sayers!” says Sayers’ agent, Bill Mattis, CEO of AllStarInc. “It's an exciting venture for Gale Sayers and for AllStarInc. Gale is very excited about working with the people at Las Vegas Live 365 and the "Art of Music" store at the Mirage Hotel. We're hoping lots of fans and friends will stop by to say hello."

Las Vegas Live 365 offers fans the opportunity to meet their favorite celebrities and to purchase memorabilia autographed specifically for them. In addition to the Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas Live 365 is also holding their “autograph experiences” in “Art of Music” stores at Planet Hollywood Casino and the Mandalay Bay Hotel, both in Las Vegas.
