I usually go to Academy. You can find a little cheaper online, but I like to select them in person, as I've ordered some in the past that while new, had some smudges/imperfections.

How do you send balls ttm? I did it once and i put The ball in a self address smaller box, weighed and i got it stamped and whatnot and then but the SA box with ball in it inside a bigger box and had it shipped. Is there an easier way than this? Do you have a lot of ttm success with balls?

Would any of you guys be interested in Gene Budig official AL balls? These are either sealed or come with their boxes. They are from 1994 or so.

I thought this was pretty cool for the price ($16.67/ball) but not sure about longevity of the gold sharpie ink.

Yeah, down at TwinsFest, many people had these balls! They looked awesome with the gold pen, but I was afraid that it wouldn't last as long. Nevertheless, next year at TwinsFest, I will probably get someone to sign one. A player that I have gotten a signature of before, like Bert Blyleven or something like that!
