Five NFL Legends Up for Auction 

San Diego, CA (September 4, 2013) - Celebrate the start of the 2013-14 NFL season while supporting the United States Rugby Foundation by putting in the high bid for a USRFF leather rugby ball autographed by NFL legends Dan Marino, Brett Favre, Jerry Rice, Marcus Allen and Tim Brown. 

The three current NFL Hall of Famers (Marino, Allen and Rice) and the two future Hall of Famers (Favre and Brown) were taking part in a football game on the flight deck of the historic San Diego based USS Midway Museum promoting EA Sports' "Madden NFL 25" video game and were only too happy to autograph the USRF rugby ball in support of youth rugby.

Not only will the high bidder of this ball, autographed by some of the NFL's all-time greats, receive a piece of sports memorabilia that will take its rightful place in any sports collection but they will have the satisfaction of knowing that every cent from their winning bid will go towards supporting youth rugby.  

Photos of the autographed ball and more information about each of the five NFL legends can be found on eBay, item #181209763964. The bidding will conclude at 11:00 a.m. (PDT) on Wednesday, September 11, 2013.
