By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. What's a name worth? If your name is Mike Tyson, the dude formerly known as "The Baddest Man on the Planet", then you can get some decent cash for your autograph.

On Sunday in Chicago at the National Sports Collectors Convention, delighted Fans lined and eagerly waited to get autographs from Mike Tyson.

Fans of the legend were all more than happy to dish out $150.00 apiece for Tyson's John Hancock of an autograph on their flat items. It cost $200.00 to have Tyson put his signature on gloves and $250.00 for his autograph to be placed on a robe.

Fans who wanted a picture with Tyson dished out $150.00. According a report out by CNBC over 100 people paid to have their photo taken with Tyson.

Hey not bad money for a little odd job on a Sunday! I am glad to see Tyson cashing in on his name and I strongly believe the fans who paid money for their little piece of the legend all got a super sweet deal. Had I been in Chicago... I would have gladly been in that line with the other fans!
