As the first rubber-core golf ball, the Haskell Bramble holds a landmark position in the history of the game.  Sold by the B.F. Goodrich Company, the Haskell was the ball that rendered gutta percha golf balls obsolete.  Marked “Haskell Bramble” on one pole and “Haskell Pat Apr 11, 1899" on the other, this unused and unpainted ball really showcases its gutta percha cover.
