Product Details

Offered here is a 1910’s suede leather laced basketball with outer seams. This wonderful antique basketball holds air perfectly and maintains it's spherical shape for an awesome display. An unusual and interesting characteristic of this basketball is that the seams are left on the outside rather than the inside. Some sporting goods catalogs refer to this ball as an "outside basketball." The idea was that having the seams turned out would allow the ball receive less wear and therefore last longer. An interesting innovation and a great looking laced basketball. Very popular among collectors of antique basketball items, these laced basketballs are always in demand and this one is an exceptional example in condition and quality. Very scarce, EX-MT.
