    2008 Super Bowl XLII Game Used Football - Photo Matched to Osi Umenyiora Fumble Recovery & Presentation Football Lot of 2. The New York Giants were cast in the role of David this day, with the New England Patriots assuming that of Goliath, aiming for the second undefeated season in NFL history. In point of fact, Brady and Belichick had already surpassed the 1972 Dolphins' record streak for duration, as Miami's Super Bowl VII victory over the Washington Redskins had been the seventeenth contest of the streak. The Patriots earned their eighteenth win of the 2007 season in the AFC Championship to punch their ticket to Phoenix and their meeting with Big Blue.

    In one of the most highly competitive Super Bowls to date, Big Blue ended New England's run with destiny by putting a glaring blemish on their 2007 season. The AFC's best dropped the big game 17-14 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. This Super Bowl XLII ball saw action when the Patriots had the ball. We have photo matched the pigskin to an Osi Umenyiora fumble recovery off of a Justin Tuck sack in the second quarter. The referee marking matches this ball perfectly.

    "Patriots" is stamped on one panel. The all-important referee marking ("72") is found on the laces and another mark is just to the right of Roger Goodell's facsimile branding. White end zone paint remnants are scattered. A presentation football gifted to longtime equipment manager Ed Skiba completes this historic Giants listing. One panel is dedicated to Skiba and captures the game's particulars. Originally obtained by our consignor from Giants equipment managers Joe and Ed Skiba. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
