Retired football players are some of the best signers of all professional athletes. With some politeness, accurate postage and a friendly note, you’ll find much success with the individuals below.

The list below showcases the player’s name, date autograph request was sent, date the autograph request was returned, where it was sent (in this installment, “H” refers to a home address, “O” refers to an office and “S” refers to the team’s arena).

When possible, the autograph request is addressed to the player, in care of the team, and sent to the team’s offices.
