1944 Poi Bowl Army-Navy Painted Football

1944 Poi Bowl Army-Navy Painted Football

From 1936 to 1939, the "Poi Bowl" in Honolulu, Hawaii, became a fixture in the college football bowl scene. Like so many things, that annual affair - which became known as the "Pineapple Bowl" in 1940 - was put on hiatus after the US's involvement in World War II. The event was, however, held on occasion as part of a game between military branches, and this ball commemorates the Army-Navy game played in 1944. It is painted like the old "Bomber Art" of WWII and the "7" in the star logo indicates the 7th edition, though interestingly it is still referred to as the old "Poi Bowl" in the ball painting. It comes from the collection of NFLer Paul Stenn, whose name is also painted on the ball, and it is in EX condition.
