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 1, 1899 on the other, this ball is also marked “10” in the center of each pole. This ball has one strike mark and is missing a small section of paint on its cover. This historic ball is in good condition although the original paint has darkened significantly.
