World's Largest Leather Football

World's largest leather footballIsland Bay pensioner Mike Bieniowski, 76, claims to own the world's largest leather football - and now he's putting it on sale for $1.5 million.

The football - marked with the date 1898, and apparently made from the hides of 18 bullocks - has a circumference of five metres, weighs 40 kilograms and stands about 1.5 metres high.

Mr Bieniowski found the huge piece of leather in the 1960s when constructing the show buildings in Newtown.
