    Wow. I am not a dedicated collector, but when I buy a box of balls I put one ball into the jar for some time now, or exchange
    my ball with the ball of my opponent and again into the jar. Also bought some interesting novelty balls... So i have around 70 balls, 15 of them are the 38mm

    Feeling lucky -so yesterday in my club I found a 38mm!!! ball laying around. No idea how did it end up there. Maybe some old school one time players left it. SO now I have 16 38mm balls in my jar. The ball is a low end one from the unknown Vietnamese manufacturer. The rearer, the better

    Yes, it's hard to imagine 4000.
    I have 75 different balls and it's already getting harder to get the ones I don't have (I don't buy them on purpose, I try to exchange with other players from the club..)

    I've still got one from late 80s to early 90s, never played, in original packaging, looks like this:


    Here's a cool website with a large, well categorized collection of TT balls, made as early as 1920s! http://www.tischtennisbaelle.org/eng..._datum2=1920er

    Do you have a 38mm Halex 3 star made in England, the best ball of the early 70's.

    I may still have a few at my parents' house... might have to look for them! Not even so much for collecting, as just to try what they feel like.







    Also, one thing I like about TT: almost anyone can put together a great collection, based on their interests. I am sure there's lots of fun to be had in watches or cars collecting but heck, your first purchase could fund that previous guy's entire 4000-ball collection. Both are nuts in some way, of course. A good way.

    are you saying that I should put some effort in collecting more balls or that it's time for me to retire?
