Leather Head Sports Handsome Dan Handmade Football
Remember when you were a kid and you loved playing sports? Some of us never lost that feeling. Leather Head footballs are made to be played with, and a lot of thought is put into the design. The leather chosen is sturdy and gripable. It's uncorrected too, so it will show natural characteristics. In time, these balls will develop a beautiful patina. Since they're meant for play, they’re designed for hands of all sizes: fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, grandparents and grandchildren. Like you, we know that playing sports is the best way to connect friends, family and generations.
Owner & Craftsman, Leather Head Sports
Leather Head Sports was founded by Paul Cunningham, a native son of Cooperstown, NY and a long time sports industry professional.
As the Photo Editor for Major League Baseball, Paul had the privilege to work with the greatest baseball photographers in the world. While at MLB, Paul was also honing his skills as a passionate leather craftsman.
Following a calling, Paul left Major League Baseball to serve as the Sr. Baseball Glove Craftsman at a small baseball glove importer. The need for independence and creative freedom lead him to strike out on his own. Forming Cunningham Classics, LLC, Paul first created LEMON BALL™ baseballs and LEATHER HEAD™ footballs. With old world craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, he has carved out a niche in distinctive, finely crafted American leather goods.
