    1965 Chicago Bears Team Signed Football. After a disappointing zero and three start, the Bears were suddenly reborn into an N.F.L. powerhouse, winning nine of their last eleven regular season games, to close respectably in third place. No doubt that this strong finish was due in large part to the Hall of Fame talents of Mike Ditka, Stan Jones, Bill George and Doug Atkins, all of whom are represented in 9/10 or better black ink on this special "Wilson" ball with embossed "Chicago Bears 1963." The remainder of the signatures range from bold and perfect to barely visible, with almost no middle ground. Counting only those 7/10 or better of the non-Hall of Famers, we total thirty-four additional Bears. Ball itself shows mild wear to the leather, and still holds air perfectly. LOA from Steve Grad & Zach Rullo/ PSA DNA.
