    Is this worth anything?

    I found this football in the apartment dumpster as I was dumping the trash. I don't know anything at all about footballs, so I really don't know if this is just a common store-bought football, or something more valuable that someone threw away for whatever reason.

    That looks like an official game ball from Super Bowl XLI. Brand new you can buy online for $90, so maybe you can get $40 at a pawn shop or see if you can sell it on eBay.

    Re: Is this worth anything?

    I'll give you like $10 for it. It's just that it's going to sit on my shelf and I'm not sure I can find a buyer for it, and it looks like there's dirt on it.

    It might have been worth something if it didn't have Chicago Bears printed on it. LOL

    Heres what you do.

    Go to Detroit, visit Hardcore Pawn.
    Get the dude with the long gray hair, show him the football.
    When he says "how much you want for it?" Say "One million dollars, it's authentic."
    When he says "I can't do that, lets be serious." Say "One thousand dollars."

    BOOM. $1,000 richer.

    Tell you what. Let me call my buddy. He's an expert in all things identifying people. He can tell you if I'm authentic or not.
