Although many Johnny Unitas plays are seared in Baltimore's collective memory, the NFL is betting folks might want a refresher.
The organization has introduced a collectible it's calling the Keepr. People plug it into their computer and can revel in 45 minutes of Johnny U's greatest moments. There's also photos, interviews and stats.
“The Keepr creates an experience that’s like visiting the Hall of Fame for each player, right from your computer,” former Colts running back Tom Matte, who played with Unitas, said in a statement. “We wanted to create something special to honor the legends while raising money for retired players.”
In addition to Unitas, the NFL has them for Mike Ditka, Sonny Jurgensen, Howie Long, Joe Montana, Walter Payton, Deion Sanders, Phil Simms, Roger Staubach and -- ack, a Steeler! -- Franco Harris,
They cost $59.95 and some proceeds will benefit the NFL Player Care Foundation and other non-profits that help retired NFL players through medical and financial hardships.
The Keepr is available at www.keeprmedia.com or call 866-819-6110.
