Advent Calendar 4 December: High-Bounce ball

Spalding..the ultimate plaything...11.29.10 003
Spalding – the ultimate plaything. For someone like myself, growing up in Brooklyn New York in the 1950s and 1960s the ultimate toy was the High-Bounce ball. We used it in twenty or thirty of our street games and cost the princely sum of 10 cents.We used it for the following games: stick-ball, stoop-ball, Kings, slap-ball, punch-ball, WAR, buck-buck and more...

The High-Bounce was simple, affordable and totally suited to the streets of New York and Brooklyn. And still, at all times, I keep a Spalding ball nearby, just in case a stick-ball game might spontaneously break out...
