This is a beautiful football with an interesting story. First, the autograph is on a 2017 team used football. I bought it as game used, but once I got it, I realized that, through my experience of collecting game used footballs, that this is probably not game used. As I tried to photo match the 3 scratch on the ball, I found that the Bills rarely (if ever) used a ball in games without referee markings. It could have been used as a kickers football but those balls usually dont have the iconic Bills logo on it and they are marked with a K.
This one is not marked that way. Everything else indicates clearly that it is team used, however. It is a beautiful dark color indicating being rubbed down by the team. And the markings are clearly from heavy use. I love the autograph for two reasons.
First, it includes the smash the tables personalization. This indicates that it was signed early in Joshs career.Thats when he was excited to have people ask him for his autograph. As he becomes overwhelmed with requests, that personalization seems to have disappeared. Secondly, the autograph is in dark permanent marked on a dark leather football. It is a subtle autograph.
It is perfectly clear to read, but it doesnt across as being gaudy and take away from the looks of this beautiful football. If you are looking for a dominating flashy autographed football, then this is not it. This autograph is subtle, but really nice. This is the only authentic Buffalo Bills football with a Josh autograph being offered. And it is 100% guaranteed authentic.
And the football holds air perfectly. Feel free to ask any questions or make a reasonable offer.And please check out my other listings of game used items, including some Buffalo specific items.
