    I have an autographed football from the late 70's with about 20 signatures on it and I have thought about selling it but if I did, I wouldn't know where to start. I thought about putting it on E-Bay but once again, not sure where I should place the reserve. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Can you identify the names?

    What is the condition of the ball?

    Is it an official NFL football? Unfortunately the pigskin does not make for the best surface to be written on which is why they now sell balls with the slick panels where names come out much more legible and last much longer.

    Ironically, one ball with numerous autographs is sometimes worth less than a single ball with one prominent auto on it. The exception is say when an entire championship teams signs a helmet.

    Go ahead and post some pictures and a description (the names on it) and we can probably give you an idea of what it might sell for.

    Here is the information.
    The names on the football are as follows:
    Sam Adams, Leon Gray, Carlos Pennywell, Steve Nelson, James McAlister, Don Westbrook, Shelby Jordan, Steve Grogan, David Posey, Harold Jackson, Tom Owen, Mel Lunsford, Ray Costict, Ray Hammel, Raymond Clayborn, Sam Cunningham, Bill Lenkaitis, Sam Hunt, Don Hasselbeck, Mike Patrick, Greg Schaum, Tim Fox, Rod Shoate, Terry Facon, John Hannah, Steve King
    Mike Haynes , Stanley Morgan.

    The Ball is a little flat but not bad after almost 30 years. I also have the original Wilson box and needle that came with the ball.

    Cool. I could really use a new football. My buds are going to throw it around this evening.

    considering you have a few HOF'ers on the ball I wouldn't ask for less than 1 grand...

    PD.
