Im looking for old soccer balls, that were made of a particular composite and were game used in the 1970’s and 1980’s. They look like your average rubber soccer ball, except they were made of a synthetic rubber called polyvinyl chloride, sometimes referred to as vinyl rubber. This composite is very different from vulcanized rubber. Heres what I want!!!

Molded constructed (one piece), not stitched or machine glued. For reference, all types of rubber composite soccer balls are molded.
Worn, beat up, game or school used! If ball has lots of wear or is damaged ( from normal game use ), like scuffs, small gouges, faded decals, scratches, cleat marks, a torn seam or no longer holds air, thats OK. If you have a game ball from the 1970s or 1980s in pretty worn condition, and you think it’s junk, than you probably have what I want.
These vinyl rubber soccer balls were very popular in the 1970’s and 1980’s. They were frequently used in many High School and College soccer games. They were even frequently used in many youth oriented soccer clubs such as the AYSO, YMCA. Contact me if you coached soccer in the 70s or 80s and you still have some of the old soccer balls from that time. You might have what I’m looking for.
I'm offering “up to” $300 for each ball. Most balls will fall between $125 and $200, but a rare few could be worth $300 ( even those that are flat, and or damaged from many years of game play ). These old soccer balls are not junk!! I’m trying to find as many as possible before they have all been discarded. I can use all the help I can get, in finding a few. Any rubber ( molded ) composite soccer balls, that were used in soccer games from 1968 up to 1982 would be of the highest interest, as these were most likely to be synthetic.
The older the ball, and the more it was used, the more it's worth!
