Throughout American sports history, no other brand has been partnered with a league longer than Wilson has been with the NFL. Not only has every point scored in the NFL been with a Wilson Football, but every Wilson NFL game ball has been handcrafted in Ada, OH by skilled craftsmen and women for decades. “The Duke” NFL football was named in honor of the game’s pioneering legend and NY Giants owner, Wellington Mara. Back when Mara was a young boy taking in the game from the sidelines, the Giants players dubbed him “The Duke” and years later, the NFL game ball took on this nickname too. Bring home “The Duke” today, which is as close as a fan can get to the authentic, on-field icon that’s been passed, caught and carried by the game’s greatest since the NFL started in 1941. Personalize this ball with custom laser engraved text by selecting the “Custom” product type.
