    I wish I didn't rely on the parents for cash.

    I'd be afraid I would drop it and break it. My mother collected crystal and had quite a lot of it. We we severely admonished never to touch it. She is gone now and I have all that crystal and I still never touch it. It just sits there gathering dust. If I had the crystal football I might not be able to resist picking it up and maybe even tossing it up and catching it.

    be careful guys...i just called to order it and i asked what size it was and it's only 4 inches by 2 inches

    definitely not the same size as the real trophy...i'm glad i didn't buy it now

    Its a paper weight, not worth $174 I wouldnt think, although it is a nice piece.

    well, u think since it is a replica they could make it the same size but not with the same material used as the 30k football

    they could sell the same size ball for 1,000 if it was made outta of foil

    It's Waterford Crystal! I have many pieces of waterford crystal, including Christmas tree decorations. $200.00 is a good price.

    This isn't glass or some knock-off crystal collector's item, this is a piece of Waterford Crystal that is individually numbered out of 5000. The generic Waterford Crystal Football paperweights are the same size and cost between $130-150. Throw in the fact that these are limited to 5000 and that they are the real deal Waterford Crystal, and you have a piece that will be worth well over $200. Priceless to me though.
