Update: thanks for suggestions, "Bonus Points" awarded to all

first please no comment on the quality of the original photo, it was from the early 90s with a Pentax film camera ( can't recall the model ) and a manual focus Vivitar Series 1 2.8-4.0 70 - 210 mm macro zoom [1:25] ( ver. 3 ), Kosine) and among my first efforts ever to pan a moving race car at speed.

The "value" of the photo was that in the lower right it bears [ pun intended ] the signature of the great Walter Payton ( the driver of the race car ) better known as the Hall of Fame Running Back from the Chicago Bears. He signed it the next year after accepting a print of the photo from me. not your usual autograph by Walter Payton -

" Walter Payton

Thank you

very much
