In exchange for your fully tax deductible $100 donation you will receive a limited edition photograph that depicts Legendary Chicago Bears Running Back, Walter Payton, as he is entering the field for his last home game at Soldier Field. Cal’s All-Star Angel Foundation, Inc. received the photographs as a generous gift from sports photographer Bob Baer. Four hundred hand numbered photographs were made for us. Each is matted and framed with hand-etched glass featuring the number 34. Included is a brass name plate reading “Walter Payton”, a hologram with corresponding collector’s number and a Certificate of Authenticity. This same photograph is featured in Chicago Bears History by Roy Taylor.
