1940 College All Stars Team Signed Football - With Nile Kinnick! Scan up to the top of just about any football autograph collector's wish list--and the very top of every Heisman Trophy wish list--and you'll find Nile Kinnick, whose death in a military aviation accident in 1943 has made his one of the toughest signatures in twentieth century sports. The 1939 Heisman winner provides a solid 5/10 black ink signature on this extremely scarce 1940 College All-Stars team-signed football (no longer holds air). Admittedly, out of the 57 signatures presented on the white leather "Spalding" pigskin, very few are legible, but one of the most important gridiron signatures of them all, in Kinnick, sits prominently on this impressive artifact. Additional keys include College Football Hall of Famers Buck Shaw and Frank Carideo. A true centerpiece to any Heisman collection, this listing provides a chance to own one of the only Kinnick signed footballs ever to see hobby light. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
