Description:
1969 University of Texas Longhorns Team Signed Football - National Championship Season! Offered here is a near-perfect and gorgeous team-signed example, representing the Texas Longhorns' 1969 National Championship season. The stunning vintage official-size "STG AFB" branded football has been autographed by 70+ members of the legendary Darrell Royal-coached '69 squad. This special example includes the extremely scarce and desirable signature of Freddie Joe Steinmark, the spunky defensive back and kick returner who played in the "Game of the Century" against Arkansas on a leg riddled with bone cancer. The courageous youngster saw his leg amputated six days afterward, and somehow returned to the sideline 21 days later, on one leg to witness his Horns' victory over Notre Dame in the 1970 Cotton Bowl. The Steinmark autograph appears front and center on the panel below the Logo, and it conservatively rates a strong 9/10 in quality. The entire ball is incredibly impressive.

Signatures include: Steinmark, Darrell Royal, James Street, Steve Worster, Jim Bertelsen, Cotton Speyrer, Ted Koy, Bobby Mitchell, Happy Feller, Jim Achilles, Scott Palmer, Jim Williamson, Jimmy Gunn, Eddie Phillips, Mike Hutchings, Ken Ehrig, Mike Dean, Bill Zapalac, Charlie Crawford, Tommy Lee, Steve Oxley, Donny Windham, Tommy Asaff, Bill Catlett, Stan Mauldin, Paul Robichau, Ronnie Tyler, Bob Huffman, Jay Cormier, George Cobb, Randy Peschel, Tom Campbell, Ray Fontenot, David Arledge, Billy Dale, Rob Patman, Randy Stout, Mike Speer, George McIngvale, Tom Matula, David Ballew, Pat Macha, Jake Rushing, Bill Atessis, Dan Terwelp, Paul Kristynik, Rick Nabors, Charlie Rogers, Sam Lawless, Jeff Zapalac, Andy Banks, Rob Schultz , Bob McKay, Emory Bellard, Sam McBriety, Larry Webb, Bobby Callison, Chris Young, Danny Lester, Terry Collins, Bobby Wuensch, Syd Keasler, Rick Troberman, Kevin Hutson, Willie Zapalac, Tom Ellis, Rick Patton, Mike Campbell and Leon Manley. Great piece featuring one of the most notable teams in Texas history. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
