Flat Football Repair/How to Fix a Flat Football


Has your favorite sports collectible gone flat?


If your Football is looking a bit deflated these days, we can help fix your flat football.
No more hiding your flat footballs in a closet - have them repaired with our flat football repair service and be proud again to display them!
With over 34 years of experience we will replace the bladder and re-lace your ball with new white laces for $37.00 plus shipping. (Autographed and Painted footballs are $39.00).   
Autographed and Painted balls will be handled gently and we will take great care to not even touch the autograph.  
This flat football repair service is for full size footballs, including white panel, painted, Wilson, Rawlings, Baden, Spalding, Hutch, Nike and other brands. 
The only way into the ball is to cut the laces, we are happy to return the old laces to you.
Please do not attempt to fix your flat football with a "fix-a-flat" type of "liquid in a tube" product. This really creates a mess and will not work. Most bladders dry out and crack over time and "fix-a-flat" does not work.
(Footballs injected with "bicycle fix-a-flat" are not accepted without prior approval and will be charged double the fee for the repair.)
Please wrap the ball in tissue or paper towel and place in a plastic bag inside a box.
If you are sending more than one ball, please do not pack them tightly against each other as they can rub and smear. Include the order number and your phone number on a piece of paper in the box and we will match it up with your online order. Please make sure your name is on the outside of the box.
