1901 Spalding “Bramble” Gutty Golf Ball. This is an exceptional vintage golf ball. This is one of the earliest golf balls that Spalding produced and it has remained in exceptional condition. In general, the gutta percha golf balls had a tendency to not last very long, even break apart in flight... in which case the golfer had to play from the spot where the largest fragment landed. Antique gutta percha golf balls from this era are to be considered extremely scarce, especially in this wonderful, EX-MT condition! A wonderful addition to any vintage golf memorabilia collection!
