The donor won the signed football at a silent auction and noticed that it didn't include Gary Clark's signature. So when he ran into him at an event in Washington, DC, he asked if he would add his signature. A few weeks later the donor met Mr. Clark at his club in Bethesda, where he happily signed his name to the 1988 Super Bowl Winning Ball. This is a unique piece of sports memorabilit you'll want to add to your collection!
