Featured is a Houston Texans Official Wilson Football game used in an official 2016 NFL game and obtained from Houston Texans star tight end CJ Fiedorowicz. The football is marked with an official Houston Texans logo on the lower panel. The ball is also marked by the equipment staff “87 TD VS IND 10/16” in black on the laces. This refers to Fiedorowicz’s huge 4th quarter touchdown catch against the Indianapolis Colts on October 16th, 2016. This ball was given to CJ after the game.
With close inspection of photos from this catch it doesn’t appear to be the same ball caught by CJ since it’s missing the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. Therefore, we are selling the ball as game used but not the actual touchdown football. Fiedorowicz has signed the ball in silver. Awesome item for a Houston Texans fan and collector!!!
