Limited Edition prototypes are rarely released to the public. They are unique in that they are embossed with the State of Alaska, and only six to ten are made. If a prototype ball is selected for a new product series, the map identifier is removed and a new design is created for mass quantities. The Prospect Athletics Ice Blue Basketball is made with composite leather and is ready for recreational or competitive play. This hand-crafted basketball has a heavy-duty construction that will stand up to frequent use on indoor or outdoor courts.
