The Handsome Dan Leather Head Football is the signature football from Leather Head Sports. Handsome Dan is named after Yale University’s bulldog mascot. Handsome Dan (the football) has also been anointed as the official football of collegiate tailgating, and it’s not hard to see why. This is a creation of expert craftsman Paul Cunningham, made in New Jersey with the perfect stitches smoothly melding into the supple leather. It looks so good that you may feel like preserving it and never getting any closer to it than Charlie Brown. However, you should know that this football ages beautifully with a rich hue instead of getting all raggedy. It’ll soon be one of your most prized possessions, and you’ll have tons of happy memories and bruises to show for it.
