    1949 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Team Signed Football. Frank Leahy's Notre Dame Fighting Irish went 10-0 in 1949 to capture their tenth national championship, and third in four years. As part of one of the romanticized sports dynasties ever, the 1949 Fighting Irish outscored their opponents by an unbelievable margin of 360-86. Led by Heisman winner Leon Hart, Notre Dame's perfect season ended with a 27-20 victory over SMU in the Cotton Bowl.

    This white Spalding autograph model football contains forty-seven black ballpoint pen signatures, including Hart, Kramer, McGehee, Coutre, Sitko, Spaniel, Cifelli, Williams, Zmijewski, Perry, Grothaus, Burns, Wightkin, McKillip, and Mazure. The autographs grade an overall 7/10. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
