From the once-anticipated exhibition’s days at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, these (2) footballs are autographed by participants from 1958 and 1959 NFL Pro Bowls, respectively. Includes:


1958 NFL Pro Bowl Multi-Signed Football: a “Rawlings” model with vintage inscriptions of “PRO BOWL 1959” and “EAST 28 West 21.” Note: these notations were errantly placed, as the signatures on this ball definitively date to the 1958 Pro Bowl. There are (29) visible ballpoint signatures whose strengths range from (“8”) to (“3”), with a few illegible scriptings. Highlights include: Billy Ray Barnes, Jim Brown (“5” strength), Chuck Drazenovich, Frank Gifford (“4” strength), Lou Groza (“5” strength), Sam Huff (“8” strength), Eddie LeBaron, Walt Michaels, Gern Nagler, Jimmy Patton (d.1972), Don Paul, Pete Retzlaff, Bob Schnelker, Jim Schrader (d.1972), Jim Ray Smith, Dick Stanfel, Ernie Stautner (“6” strength), Leo Sugar and Alex Webster. Note: this ball does not inflate completely, yet presents as though fully inflated.   



1959 NFL Pro Bowl Multi-Signed Football: a “Rawlings” pigskin with “PRO BOWL 1959” inscribed, the souvenir is signed by (30) of the game’s combatants. Executed in ballpoint pen, the signatures vary in strength. Some show up to (“7-8”) potency, while a few have faded almost completely. Keys include: Bill Anderson, Tom Brookshier, Jim Brown (“6-7” strength), Marion Campbell, John Crow, Dean Derby, Frank Fuller, Frank Gifford (“6” strength), Lou Groza (“7” strength), Sam Huff (“5-6” strength), Bobby Layne (d.1986, “4-5” strength), Tommy McDonald (“4” strength), Walt Michaels, Jerry Norton, Jimmy Patton, John Reger, Jess Richardson (d.1975), Bob Schnelker, Jim Ray Smith, Bob Toneff and Norm Van Brocklin (d.1983, “3” strength). Note: This ball does not fully inflate, yet presents nicely.
