Football Repair Service

Regular price $45.00

Do you have an old relic?  An old football with historic significance or sentimental value?  An autographed football that is no longer holding air?

Why not send it into us for repair and revitalization?  We'll replace the old bladder with a new Butyl Rubber bladder and re-lace it with genuine rubberized nylon football lace.  We'll also lightly recondition the leather before returning it to you. 

We respect valuable historic artifacts, and irreplaceable autographed balls so we also advise a consultation with you first to make sure the process is appropriate. 

*Technical note: We use genuine butyl rubber bladders in contrast with the polyurethane bladders used in most modern footballs. We've repaired hundreds of footballs, including Wilson, Rawlings, Nike and Spalding footballs, some surprisingly new. We've noted that polyurethane bladders don't expand and contract, making them vulnerable to changes in air pressure and changing weather conditions.  What we see every day is that polyurethane bladders actually disintegrate.  In contrast, butyl rubber, expands and contracts with changes in air pressure, so butyl rubber bladders, while a bit heavier than polyurethane, are simply more durable.  Like all inflated sports balls, butyl rubber bladders will slowly bleed air over time and will need to be re-inflated periodically.
