    1949 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Team Signed Football - National Championship Season! Featuring solid black ink signatures on the offered high quality regulation-sized "Gridiron NoX" football, the great Leon Hart, who earned a Heisman Trophy for his actions during the '49 season, finishes the list of 32 presented exemplars (signatures range between 3-8/10 quality). A College Football Hall of Famer, Hart beat out Charlie Justice and Doak Walker for the Heisman this season, in addition to his Fighting Irish team capturing the 1949 National Championship. Including a superb signature from legendary head coach Frank Leahy, the mere existence of a ball from a National Championship team dating from over half a century ago is a miracle in itself. Their 10-0 record this season stretched the squad's unbeaten streak to 38 games. A rare and desirable piece for the Fightin' Irish in all of us. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
