    Wow the current bid is 150 pounds already! I know there are several real collectors of different TT-balls. I wanted to gather them as well when I were younger, but there are too many of them haha.
    By the way there are balls from other matches as well, check it out by choosing 'Table Tennis' under the search bar.

    At the Games I was lucky enough to get (non-Olympic) bats signed by Wang Hao and Ning Ding, and balls signed by the rest of the Chinese teams. I just wanted them as mementos. It never occurred to me that they'd be worth anything. Are they?

    Wow great mementos Joe! Yeah seems like a lot of equipment is being auctioned on the links provided. People are bidding so they have some worth. Some are biding at £150.

    Is it much different from a WTTC ball ? If yes, it could be pretty interesting

    The team event is instead of the doubles. Previously when there was Olympic doubles there was no Olympic team event

    From wikipedia:
    In 1992 (only), two bronze medals were awarded in each event. Due to China's dominance in the sport the format was changed for the 2012 Olympics, such that only two competitors from each country can enter (instead of 3). This format makes it such that one country cannot win all three top medals - as has been the case during both the Individual Men's and Women's events at the Beijing Olympic tournament, where China dominated and won all 6 medals.[3] In 2008, the doubles events were replaced by team events to lessen the emphasis on doubles play.
