We can fix anything that isn’t human.

“We can fix anything that isn’t human,” states Rod Hewitt, CEO of, and with motto like that, you would think the restoration artists at Restoration By Heart would rarely be surprised. But when a prospective client contacted them about a certain family treasure, the art conservators were not only surprised but challenged.

A couple in Houston owned a 1980 Super Bowl football signed by the great Steelers team of the 70’s and early 80’s. Over the years, the forty-seven signatures on the ball had faded, the texture of the ball had diminished, and most important of all, the ball had flattened and could no longer be inflated.

The Houston couple had one simple question: Had Gustavo Perez, the head restorer at Restoration By Heart, ever restored a football before, let alone a football in that condition? The renowned Art Restoration company has restored many different sports memorabilia before, but none with the amount of internal deterioration this Super Bowl football had. provides free restoration evaluations and estimates, so the Houston couple sent their precious 1980 Super Bowl football from Houston to California, where the art restoration experts could closely examine the football to determine if the football itself could be rebuilt.

Fortunately, Mr. Perez devised a unique solution to completely revitalize the 1980 Super Bowl Championship Football. Additionally, he restored the signatures from that great team and the treasured championship football was brought back to life.

“Sometimes, when you need magic, it takes a little longer,” says Gustavo Perez.
