FEBRUARY'S RESTORATION OF THE MONTH
1894 North Carolina University Trophy Leather Melon Football
Recently I had the pleasure of doing a restoration on this amazing piece of college football history. It is a year / season football owned by Terri Merritt, grand daughter of William Merritt who played End for the North Carolina Tarheels from 1892 to 1895.
I was told by the family that Mr. Merritt brought this ball home with him when he returned from school. There was a pretty substantial tear in the body of the football as you can see in the photos. We repaired the tear and restored this beast back to it's glory. I hope you can enjoy seeing this ball as much as I did. How could you not?
