I am not sure where these came from exactly, but they are three balls that could be used for final loads in a cups and balls routine. They are of particular interest to anyone who already uses a set of Mike Rogers' mini baseballs for the Cups and Balls, since these bigger (about 2 inches in diameter) baseball-looking balls have a similar look as the Mike Rogers' small handmade baseballs.
(To be clear -- these are NOT Mike Rogers baseballs -- they are NOT sewn leather, but are instead rubber balls decorated to look similar to the classic Mike Rogers Baseballs. You can get three of the real Mike Rogers balls for about $75, if you can find them for sale... But if you want a less expensive alternative, read on...)
The balls are rubber, and the stitching is not sewn on, but is inked on. Each stitch is, however, "carved" into the rubber surface of the ball, so it looks very much like actual stitiching from a short distance. The balls are a bit spotty/dirty, so they look like real used baseballs. One of them has a couple of small cuts or gouges in it.
I almost kept these for myself, but I decided to offer them to my loyal TMGS customers! But there's only one set, so act fast if you want them!
(Any info that anyone has on these balls, I'd love to hear it!)
