Old 1970's / 1980's PVC / PU rubber soccer balls

Hello all,

I'm writing this post in hopes of finding at least one soccer ball. If I find more, that's great!!

I'm looking for really old, game used, synthetic rubber soccer balls. What is synthetic rubber, you ask? Is an imitation rubber, consisting of either polyvinyl chloride ( PVC ) or polyurethane ( PU ). These soccer balls were very common throughout Canada, and used in nearly every province. Synthetic rubber is not vulcanized rubber. They may look the same, but that's were the similarity's stop. Vulcanized rubber soccer balls are cheap, and usually are made in China or Taiwan. They are quite common, even today. Synthetic rubber soccer balls stopped production around 1985, and can be quite hard to find. I'm looking to buy a few. Here's what I'm looking for

Size 5.
Game / match used ( they do not need to retain air )
Old, from the 1970's and 1980s
Classic black and white


I will offer up to $500 for one. The oldest, most used balls will fetch the most. Most of these old balls will go for around $200, but a rare few could be worth over $400.

Why you ask? I'm collecting them.
