Two Heisman Trophy commemorative footballs, each signed by 20 or more former winners of the coveted award. Each year at the Heisman Trophy Award ceremonies, the newest recipient of the award and all of the attending former winners are asked to sign footballs, which are then distributed as commemorative gifts to all of the signers. Both of the balls in this lot were given to Gino Torretta, respectively, at the 2006 and 2009 award ceremonies. Torretta later donated them to a charity auction and each is accompanied by the original descriptive card from the auction. 1) 2006 Heisman Trophy Winners Signed Football.
