Handsome Dan is our signature football, the one the The Wall Street Journal called "The Perfect Football" I started Leather Head Sports with a sense of nostalgia and the conviction that the love of sports is universal. We strive to create heirloom quality products that evoke the memories of a simpler time. The Handsome Dan football is our first design and it remains our best seller.

The Handsome Dan football is made from rich, supple, uncorrected leather. This ball will age beautifully, in fact it will improve with use. Handsome Dan is destined to become a constant companion.
