About Chicago Bears
Thomas Paine once said, "Titles are but nicknames, and every nickname is a title." He wasn’t around long enough to be a Chicago Bears fan, but the Monsters of the Midway, also known as "Da Bears," know a thing or two about titles. They have won nine of them, including one Super Bowl in 1986 with a hipster by the name of Jim McMahon as quarterback and a refrigerator of a lineman known as, well, "The Fridge," William Perry. The latter, an offensive lineman, holds the distinction of not only lining up as a running back and scoring a touchdown in the Super Bowl, but for having the biggest Super Bowl ring in the history of the game—a whopping size 25. The average adult male wears a size 10 to 12. Whatever name one wants to give the Bears, or the Fridge for that matter, the name always stands big and tall in NFL history, as it has since George Halas bought them for 100 dollars in 1921. Their storied past—from Red Grange to Walter Payton—makes the Bears a favorite among collectors who only need to seek eBay’s reliable sellers to find an autographed Chicago Bears jersey with Payton’s No. 34, or a Chicago Bears autograph football signed by legendary running back Gale Sayers. Oh, and speaking of legends, there is one more title owned by the Bears: the most players enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Titles and legends are what Da Bears are all about.
