Syracuse University had its most successful season in 1959, going undefeated behind the rushing prowess of Ernie Davis and the play of an all-around excellent offense. ‘Cuse went undefeated in 1959, outscoring opponents 413-73 and finishing the year with a 23-14 dismantling of the Texas Longhorns in the Cotton Bowl Classic. Offered here is a presentational football signed by thirty-four (34) members of the undefeated national champions Syracuse Orangemen. Signatures on this football include Ger Shwedes (signed twice), Ernie Davis, Roger Davis, Jerry Sobul, John Nichols, Bob Yates, Mark Weber, Gary Fallon, Joe Caramanna, Ken Erickson, Dave Sarette, Dick Easterly, Ben Schwartzwalder (Head Coach) and several others.

Adding to the allure of this amazing gridiron relic, this football originates direct from the collection of Ger Schwedes, who notates on a free panel in silver metallic marker, "SU Team Football from My Collection - Ger Schwedes."

Penned by the team on an official Rawlings Collegiate model game ball in white marker, “Syracuse 59” has been painted on this ball in orange and blue lettering at the time it was presented to Schwedes by the university. Well preserved and in overall fine condition. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
