The Council of Fashion Designers of America have teamed up with NFL and invited 50 fashion designers and companies to create bespoke footballs in celebration of this years Super Bowl.
One-Of-A-Kind NFL Footballs
Fifty football fans can be lucky owners of these one-of-a-kind creations by well-known designers of menswear, womenswear and jewelry. From colored leathers to Swarovski studded, made with LEGO bricks or hand-knitted, each is treated uniquely by a member of the CFDA.
The most luxurious of the bespoke balls is the Tiffany & Co football (shown above), which is comprised of 12 pounds of sterling silver and .23 pounds of yellow gold. Design features include hand engraved text and ornamentation. Each of its custom fit vermeil laces is the shape of an X for the Roman numeral, 10. Together the 5 X?s commemorate Super Bowl 50. This one will come with a certificate of authenticity.
I’m sharing 20 of the 50 up for auction with you here. A link to all 50 and to bid is at the end of this post.
The footballs will be up for auction from now through Feb.14 (that’s valentine’s day folks and these would make great gifts!). Proceeds from the auction go to support the NFL Foundation.
See all 50 and start bidding here. BIDDING HAS ENDED.
This is not the first time the CFDA and the NFL teamed up for an auction. They did the same with 48 helmets in 2014.
