    1968 Super Bowl II Game Used Football Signed by Bart Starr - With Letter From Referee. From the very start of the Green Bay Packers' 1967 season, Vince Lombardi had one goal in mind, "Run to Win," all the way to his unprecedented third championship victory in a row. But Lombardi's final stint as head coach of the Green Bay Packers was filled with struggles from his aging veterans, adversity from the team's young up-and-comers, while facing its biggest test in the horrific conditions at the 1967 Championship Game, which is now widely known as "The Ice Bowl." But despite the many question marks the 1967 team faced, coach Vince somehow got his players to play above their physical talent levels, and in true Lombardi fashion, the Super Bowl II winning Packers left nothing on the field.

    Heritage Auctions is proud to present one of the most impressive and significant pieces from the second Super Bowl- a used ball signed by game Most Valuable Player Bart Starr. Accompanied with a letter of provenance from notable Super Bowl II official Ben Dreith, who states that the football was used by the Oakland Raiders when they were on offense in Super Bowl II, this "The Duke" Wilson - Thorp Sporting Goods ball exhibits minimal wear throughout. Starr's signature is presented in pristine silver ink, in addition to an impressive "MVP SB II GB 33 OAK 14". One of the most historic Packers pieces ever offered, the Canton-caliber pigskin is perfectly suited for the most high-end of Green and Gold collectors. Letter of provenance from Ben Dreith. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
