The rumors about Johnny Manziel signing autographs for $99 on Super Bowl weekend turned out to be true as the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner made a rare public appearance yesterday, showing up at a sporting goods store. Cindy Gaytan, the manager of the Signature Stadium store that hosted Manziel, said he signed more than 150 signatures on helmets, balls and pictures and took more than 70 photos. Signatures cost $99 each, as did professional photos.


All kinds of fans made the trip to the mall store in Katy, Texas for a chance to meet Manziel and have a memory with him. Some were just there for a gag, such as David Molina, who wore a Scooby-Doo costume, similar to one which Manziel wore one Halloween. Or the guy who just wanted to take a picture with Manziel while holding a stack of $1 bills.

Manziel did not talk with the media but did seem to enjoy interacting with everyone as he tries to remain focused on getting back into the NFL.
