A local man won a piece of NFL memorabilia Saturday at the Six Shooter Siding Festival. Charlie Chavez of Tucumcari bought a raffle ticket to win an Official NFL football autographed by Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher.
“I never thought I would win something like this,” Chavez said. “When they announced the winning ticket, I could not find my ticket and I knew I had that number. When I claimed the football a few people offered to buy it from me, but I would not sell it.”
Chavez will add the autographed football to his collection of Urlacher memorabilia which includes an autographed photo, a 2007 Super Bowl guide and Tucumcari Rattlers football jersey.
“I had the chance to meet him when he came down to the dealership here in Tucumcari,” Chavez said. “I had my picture taken with Brian. He is a real approachable, good-spirited guy.”
