Autograph collectors, especially those who want to get Chicago Bears players, will want to circle April 20 on their calendars.

That’s when Bears running back Matt Forte will be in Gurnee at The Bottom Line barbershop (the east side of Route 21 between Washington and Grand).

From 10 a.m. until noon that day, you can purchase an autograph, as Forte will sign any item for $60 and any two items from the same person for $100.

This requires signing up in advance. To do so, call The Bottom Line at (847) 672-4154.
