The first Spalding Basketball was made in 1894 by Albert Goodwull Spalding - three years after the invention of the game in 1891. When the game of basketball was first invented, it was actually played with a soccer ball.
Spalding made the first official basketball uniforms back in 1901. Spalding also made the first official basketballs at the request of James Naismith.
Either "Spalding" Or "Baden"
The Spalding company. Their owner A.G.Spalding made the actual ball.
It's made of leather
Spalding can be a girls basketball or a guys basketball
Spalding also figures prominently in the history of basketball. James Naismith, the inventor of the game, commissioned him to create the world's first basketball in 1892.
Spalding is not on EVERY basketball. Just on a lot of them. The reason is because Spalding is the leading manufacturer of basketballs.
There are many basketball equipment manufacturers.Spalding, Baden, Rawlings, Wilson, etc.
