As the first rubber-core golf ball, the Haskell 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 ball is unused. Approximately 95% of its original paint remains and still has its original shine and luster.  This is a milestone ball for any early golf ball collection.
