    Not a single comment?
    I thought it was an interesting read, change out the company name with a current brand and it could be from last month. 😆

    I started at 13 in 1976, so I remember Royal and Molitor balls in a triangle box and all sorts of stuff, lol

    These were a premium product when they were out. As good as any Maxfli or Slazenger Ball.
