    1953 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Team Signed Football - From Coach Leahy's Final Season. A 13-13 tie against Iowa was the only thing that kept the 1953 Notre Dame Fighting Irish from capturing a National Championship during coach Frank Leahy's final season. Representing that highly significant season we are proud to present an extremely high grade team-signed Notre Dame football. Signed in dark black ball-point ink, the "NOTRE DAME" regulation sized pigskin includes the following keys: coach Leahy, '53 Heisman winner Johnny Lattner, All-Americans Don Penza, Neil Worden, Art Hunter and others. Printed copies of the team's roster, results and ranking are taped on a side panel. An absolutely stunning gridiron artifact, which is second to none. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
