 jim: You certainly can't go to the guy painted on the ball for encouragement. And the poor seller clearly had no idea who he was dealing with.

That a way to drive a hard bargain and then seal the deal.  Good story!

In the 50's or 60's Duncan used to sell that kind of balero, but I believe they called it bolero.
Besides that of the Duncan Bolero there was that of the Bob-A-Loop also from the 1950's.

Big smiles and happy faces as they enjoy the Bob-A-Loop.  The family scene is great. 

Thanks for sharing that.  I enjoyed watching it.

Bob-a-Loop? Wasn't that a famous Desi Arnaz song?
