    1935 East vs. West Shrine Game Presentation Football Signed by Gerald Ford and Robert Zuppke. While his NFL aspirations were never realized, we believe Gerald Ford chose a pretty successful career path. Our former Commander in Chief could probably boast that he was the finest presidential athlete to take residence in the White House. While George H. Bush, Dwight Eisenhower and even Barack Obama played competitively at the college level, Ford excelled at Michigan as an All-American center.

    This presentation East vs. West football is signed by the bulk of both teams in black ink. It is our assumption that this ball saw the field of play. Once the game was concluded the ball was stuffed and sealed as it weighs a hearty 6 3/4 pounds. Highlighting the autographs is that of Ford and collegiate coaching legend Robert Zuppke. Signatures are extremely light, and James Spence Authentication has ruled "inconclusive" on every signature expect the Ford and Zuppke, due to lack of exemplars or illegible ink. Still, an extremely important and historic piece featuring President Ford. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
