Handsome Dan original Leather Head™ football

Leather Head Sports was founded by Paul Cunningham, a native son of Cooperstown, NY and 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 basic human desire 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.
