Description

Presented is an actual game football that was presented to Owens for a game he had during the 2002-03 season with the San Francisco 49ers. It was the amazing 24 point comeback in the Wildcard Playoff Game against the New York Giants on January 5, 2003.

The official NFL football was hand-painted on one of the panels with all the game details (January 5, 2003 at 3Com Park vs. New York Giants). The ball also has the additional detailing: “Game Ball Presented to Terrell Owens” – “2 PT Conversion REC “49ers 39 Giants 38”. In the game, Owens had 12 receptions 177 yards total and two touchdowns.

Nobody thought the San Francisco 49ers had it in them. Nobody imagined their 24-point hole was anything but a grave. But as the Giants collapsed around them, Jeff Garcia and Terrell Owens measured up to their franchise’s greats in one of the most exciting episodes in the 49ers’ long playoff history.

Garcia and Owens led the way for the 49ers, though Giants long snapper Trey Junkin also helped out with two terrible snaps in a monumental momentum shift that wrung every drop of emotion out of a sellout crowd at Candlestick Park.

“As long as you live, you might never see a game better than that,” said 49ers coach Steve Mariucci, whose job might have been saved. “It’s kind of hard to remember everything right now, but I remember how it ended.”

The 49ers’ rally was the biggest in NFC playoff history. Only Buffalo’s 32-point comeback in a 41-38 victory over Houston in January 1993 was bigger.

Right down to a confusing, contentious ending, it was a game with more twists, turns and dramatic moments than most teams would see in years — from Amani Toomer’s three touchdown catches to Kerry Collins’ impressive performance, from Garcia’s impossibly gutsy leadership to the fight that broke out at the height of the tension.

The 49ers (11-6) trailed 38-14 with 4 minutes left in the third quarter, but they scored 25 straight points on two TD passes and a scoring run by Garcia, as well as two 2-point conversion catches by Owens.

The football is a wonderful stepping stone item that made T.O. into the Hall of Famer he is. Without these milestones, he would have been just average. But, with every record passed, yard gained and touchdown celebrated he was extraordinary. The paint is still solid and in full brightness/glory. It is wonderfully displayable and a true piece of his milestone. Note, the ball does not hold air.

Interestingly, it was an item that came directly from the famous purchase of  Terrell Owen’s Storage unit as reported by TMZ. Overall, it is a great NBA collectible by itself but since it came out of the unit with the provenance of being owned and worn by Owens it makes it that more special.
