Vintage Authentic c1930s Laced Basketball
Vintage original Leather basketball (not a preproduction) c 1930s. My research shows that laces were removed around 1937. It looks like there was some writing on it but it has faded to the point I cannot make it out.
The ball is a little soft but person I acquired the ball from said he had replaced the bladder but you have to remove laces to refill because refill hole has moved and does not line up with hole in leather. There are some scuffs and scratches on ball and the laces may have been replaced.
Wonderful shelf decor for the sports or basketball fan. Great in man cave, bonus room, office shelf etc.
Ball measures Apr 9" across, give or take a bit.
