THE ALL NEW
DITKA 89 SPECIAL EDITION
This new limited release was developed in honor of Ditka’s upcoming jersey retirement ceremony, which is set to take place on December 9th, 2013 at Soldier Field. Drafted by Chicago as the fifth overall pick in the 1961 draft, Ditka was a presence that was immediately felt across the NFL and the first ever to play the tight-end position. Ditka spent the next five years playing for the Bears, earning a Pro-Bowl trip each season. Bears team Chairman, George McCaskey, has announced that this will be the final number to be retired by the team.
