Back in 1894, A. G. Spalding made its very first basketball (then called basket ball) for Dr. James Naismith, who invented the game of basketball. This 125th anniversary edition is an exact replica of that very first ball.
If you’ve never seen such a ball, it looks like a football/basketball hybrid, due to the stitches on the face of the ball. The Spalding 125th Anniversary 1894 Official Basket Ball features the exact size and weight of the original. It’s also made of premium Horween leather and features the original A. G. Spalding & Bros trademark.
Limited to 125, this beautiful piece comes in its own display case. If you’re a lover of basketball, or just of sports in general, this will be a truly memorable piece in your collection.
