    1950 Chicago Cardinals Team Signed Football - With Mint Curly Lambeau Signature! Gridiron historians will always remember Curly Lambeau as the legendary head coach and founder of the Green Bay Packers, who led his squad to an unprecedented six NFL championships. And as common as victories were for Lambeau on the football field, autograph gurus recognize Curly as anything but a "common" signature, as an autograph from the Hall of Famer is one of the rarest and most sought after in the hobby.

    Offered here is an original team-signed regulation size football (still holds air)signed by the 1950 Chicago Cardinals and their head coach Curly Lambeau. An absolutely pristine pigskin in every way, 37 members of the Windy City team signed the "Wilson Charley Trippi" model ball in Mint black ball-point ink, while including the following keys: Lambeau, Charley Trippi, Cecil Isbell, Pat Harder, Jim Hardy, Red Cochran and others. Considering the high quality and extreme scarcity, this is easily one of the most intriguing football pieces in our April Signature Auction. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
