Just lost an auction for the picture shown here (Souvenir Ball with fake signatures). Cannot find this anywhere else in searches I've tried. Does anyone here know the manufacturer of this ball? I know the signatures are fake, obviously, but wanted this for my man cave to display next to my Cowboy helmets. Thanks in advance.

I grew up in Wisconsin. When I was a kid, during the football season, Coke bottle caps had images of Packer players on the inside of the cap on a rubber liner. If you collected them, you could send them in to redeem for prizes. The best prize was a similar football with facsimile autographs of Packer players. Of course it was 40 years ago, but the ball had the logo of the Packers just like yours and I remember the laces were a bit cheap and cheesy - unlike the laces on the football that I played with. Not sure the brand, but the footballs were similar. I remeber in 1976 the ball with Coke was red white and blue!

Thanks. I'll add Coca-cola, etc. in my search.
