Turn of the Century Melon-Style Football Bladder

ITEM 3: Here we offer a rather unusual vintage football piece. It is a bladder for an early melon style football that has never been used. Nicely displayed, it allows for a better understanding of the pre-airhole, melon style footballs and how they were inflated. The process was to insert this bladder into the football, inflate the bladder, tie it off and THEN secure the rawhide laces on the football. This would have been a nightmare for Tom Brady! A great conversation piece and novel antique football collectible. Price $175

Antique Football Shoes made by Spalding
