All I can say is "Wow." I hope it's real. I'm pretty sure it's real. The consensus in the forums on SCN is that returns through Manning's PeyBack Foundation are real. In the past, it has reportedly been a crapshoot. If you're extremely lucky, you'll get the item you sent in personally signed by Peyton. If you're lucky, you'll get a genuinely autographed 5x7 photo, but the item you sent will be returned unsigned. And, if you're unlucky, you get a pre-printed facsimile autographed photo. However, with Manning's injury that has kept him out of action all season, he apparently has more time to answer fan mail. If it is really his signature, he's easily the highest profile athlete on the planet who does this. Amazing!
