This football is believed to have the signatures of more than two dozen members of the 1939 University of Iowa football team. The team, nicknamed the Ironmen, went 6-1-1 that year and featured Heisman Trophy winner Nile Kinnick as its star halfback. The football is now being kept in a lockbox at a West Des Moines bank.

Lord, have Mercy! An HONEST politician! That’s more amazing than the fotball.
Was stationed at the U.S. Navy Base in Yokosuka, Japan.
The name of the high school on base there was Nile Kinnick.
Never knew who he was until now...
