This ball contains one of the rarest college football HOFers in existence; Joe Routt was tragically and heroically killed in Belgium in WWII. The ball has 14 signatures, many are legible although a few are very light. The autographs include: Joe Routt, George Sussman, WH "Dog" Dawson, Will Pedersen, Carl Stravinik, Mac Spadie, Kay Eakin, Don Scott, Mush Battista, Henry Hauser. These are estimates of the names, as there is no definitive list to check against. The ball is a Wilson Official 22R and the bladder is broken. From the collection of the esteemed Helms Hall Sports Museum and will come with letter of provenance/authenticity from Lelands.com. NOTE: Could very well be a ball used in the game, in a major event, or from a special "famous" donor. Many of the Helms pieces were unidentified with their source information having been lost through the years.
