Joe Flacco finds sweet spot on football signed by every Super Bowl winning quarterback

Shutdown Corner

After winning the Super Bowl on Sunday night, Joe Flacco was asked to add his John Hancock to one of the cooler memorabilia pieces out there: A football signed by the quarterback of every Super Bowl-winning team in NFL history.

In the CSN Baltimore video below, Flacco says he didn't hesitate and that he knew exactly where he wanted to make his mark. The Baltimore Ravens quarterback didn't want to randomly place his name next to a Jeff Hostetler, a Brad Johnson or a Trent Dilfer.

No, Flacco wanted to find a spot with more meaning.

"I asked him where Joe Montana's signature is and I found that," Flacco said. "And Joe Namath happened to be above it so I put myself right between them. I thought that was pretty cool."

Very cool. Not only did Flacco finally earn that "elite" level by winning a Super Bowl title, he also joined Montana, Namath and Joe Theismann as the only "Joes" to win a title. Sure, he may never become as legendary as those first two names, but no one can ever take his signature off that football.

What's interesting is that any of us could own a similar football with the right amount of hustle and money. A total of 30 quarterbacks have accounted for the 47 Super Bowl titles and only one of them — Baltimore's Johnny Unitas — is dead. So with a Johnny Unitas football and some autograph-seeking know-how, it's a quest you could conceivably undertake.
