Remember the five-year, $250 million deal David Beckham allegedly signed? Well, that number was subsequently proven completely off base when his annual salary came out. It was more along the lines of five-year, $37 million.
But the remaining $213 million? Well, it's deals like these that will add to his wealth.
A lot of people sign with a Sharpie but not a lot of people actually sign with Sharpie.
