Fivesides

Post by mrchrisallen » 31 Mar 2018, 08:54

Just picked up a near mint set with Partick & Hearts celluloid flats, but not sure about the balls that should go with it.
The pack of red balls seem to be cricket balls. There were a couple of small white footballs but I've assumed that they should be smaller?
On the left of the photo are 3 balls I've got from my spares.
Any info on what it should have?
My money is on the middle of the three.

Should be same size as the cricket balls.

The other (larger) balls look like Super Striker?

at one time they were supplied new with two sizes in the bag ... unless someone has gone to the considerable trouble of bagging an erroneous set and resealing the one that lives in my cupboard :lol:

these are photos taken from my set, the balls as well as white are also in brown and in 2 different sizes as shown in the following pictures.
In these years I sold 3 sets fiveside and all had balls in 2 different sizes.
could it be just randomness?
the size of the larger ball is compatible with the size of the sides of the fiveside doors
To be precise, the ball slightly larger I have always seen it white.

You should have white or brown cricket balls.

The brown ones seem to be from earlier sets, white a later innovation. That's just my impression - I don't have any evidence to back that up.
