Having already successfully peddled clothes and vitamin-infused water, 50 Cent is now moving into the memorabilia business. The New York Post reports that 50 is close to signing a multi-year deal with Steiner Sports. The terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed, but it is expected to include everything from autographed photos and movie-related products to concert worn apparel.
