    First post for me....congrats on a quality board. I'm looking for some information on the years that Alvin Mathews played for GB. I grew up in Kingsville, Texas and my father was a professor at Texas A&I University. Al Mathews played for Texas A&I and was a student of my father's and gave him this GB team signed ball. I think it's from the late 60's but not sure. Can anyone put a year on it? Thanks for any help. jim-tx

    Thanks so much for the info. I know that Bart Starr's name is on the ball...does that help in dating? Also, any idea of the value? Here's a bigger file pic. Thanks again, jim

    autos arent really my thing but have these guys authenticate it and you should be able to get a decent amount for it.

    As far as Starr? No not really. Long career and then stayed with the org.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm thinking about dropping this down on the classified section and possibly sell it. Any idea of what a fair market value would be? I have this football and another one just like it from the Oakland Raiders. Eugene Upshaw also played down at Texas A&I and gave the ball to my father. I'm not a big collector and I'm just wanting to 'thin' some stuff out after a move. You guys have been very helpful...again, thanks! Jim G

    Not a SB year so its not going to be huge number but you might get $1500 to 2k. Not sure.

    If you have a contact number I can put someone in contact with you that will get you some cash for it. Either through an auction company or he will buy it himself.

    Also...the ball is a little 'deflated'....should I air it up or keep as is?? It's been in a plastic display case and is in very good condition. Thanks again..jim
