Handsome Dan Football

Yo Homie! Make it Super Bowl Sunday EVERY DAY!

The Leather Head™ Handsome Dan Footballs are the official football of collegiate tailgating, and are the signature footballs of Leather Head™ Sports. They're charming and good looking, but fun and tough too. Each ball is hand made, one at a time, by a skilled and dedicated craftsman, at the Leather Head™ Glen Rock, New Jersey, workshop. Made from rich, supple leather, this ball will age beautifully and become a constant companion. An heirloom quality football that will only improve with use - a child's prized possession, a parent's favourite toy.

"Finally, in a solemn ceremony, each new Leather Head™ football is imbued with the heart of an Eagle and soul of a warrior."

▲ Designed to be slightly smaller than an NFL ball, for ease and enjoyment of use.
▲ 19 1/2 inches around the middle - the standard size of a "youth" football.
▲ Constructed from hand-selected individual panels of supple American tanned leather.
▲ Each ball is individual, distinct, and special.
▲ Polyester thread.
▲ Raw hide lace.
▲ Butyl rubber bladder.
▲ Made in the USA.
▲ Minor imperfections in natural leather to be expected.
"The leather that I mostly use is very natural, it's uncorrected leather. It's dyed, but it still shows a lot of the real natural qualities of the leather. You know, there's scars on it, there may be an occasional bug bite, but in general, all of those elements speak to the life of the animal that wore the skin. I want people to see that, and I want them to appreciate the fact that there is something real about this." - Paul Cunningham, Leatherhead Sports
