Joe Sobek

The Joe Sobek Ball

“Owning a Joe Sobek ball, or even seeing one in person, is like the Holy Grail of racquetball.  It is truly seeing a part of history that only a few in our sport will possess.  There cannot be more than a dozen of these balls in good shape that exist.  Joe Sobek developed this ball soon after he invented the sport, and it was used by all players during the first years of racquetball in the 60’s.  When the IRA was started they decided on Seamco for the official ball which began the demise of this coveted Sobek ball.  With the fading of the ball, a once significant part of racquetball becomes a momentous part of history.”-Randy Stafford
