They still make the pink rubber balls. My kids buy them in the Village Shop on Forest Avenue all the time. (They seem to lose them a lot). I saw a news story a couple of months ago about the Spalding - is it Spaldine or Spaldeen? It seems that they didn't make this classic stickball ball for a while and now they are making it again. They showed a bunch of fifty something guys trying it out on a street in Brooklyn and comparing it to the original.
