    1961 Ernie Davis Single Signed Football. In the large world of autograph collecting, "single-signed" examples are always the most desirable. But, unfortunately for Ernie Davis enthusiasts, there are only a handful of football singles that have ever made it to the hobby. Offered here is the only single-signed football from the "Elmira Express" that we have ever handled, and one of very few in existence. Admittedly, the "E" on his first name has been enhanced by blue ball-point ink in an unknown hand, but this exemplar will still rate with the best of the best. The regulation-sized "Wilson" autograph model ball exhibits medium wear, and is presumably some sort of a presentational piece, considering the professional style lettering on the white panel. A truly unique piece, and possibly the most significant Davis signed football ever to hit the auction block. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
