Ada, Ohio – Where Footballs are Born

We recently made a trip out to Wilson Sporting Goods’ football factory in Ada, Ohio.  It’s a great facility run by some equally great people.  The facility and the crafters there are quite unassuming in my approximation, but you can’t argue with their product.  Their sewing and lacing are pretty much unbeatable.  I snapped a few photos while I was there, here are some highlights…

Blue sky, white roof, and the red, white and blue.

    I have an old keep sake needle point covered football skin which needs a new bladder. It is smaller than a standard football. The bladder is pnly 11 inches long. Do you know where I can purchase a replacement bladder? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. Don
