Visitors at the Longaberger Festival are receiving a special surprise. 

Former Cleveland Browns Football Player Kevin Mack was on site to sign autographs. Mack was a runningback for the team from 1985-1993. 

"I also knew they had gone into agreement with the NFL and they’re printing NFL baskets longaberger style, so it’s kind of cool," said Kevin Mack.

The Team Spirit line by Longaberger has custom designed baskets for all NFL and some college football teams.

"I’ve seen some of them and I liked the designs I’ve actually kind of investigated my old alma mater Clemson, I want to see a Clemson basket," said Mack.

While the baskets are nice to display, Mack suggests using them for tailgating and storing memorabilia. On Friday, former Browns Football Player Bernie Kozar was signing autographs.
