  2. Collection has been updated again! The noteworthy additions are: Mark Crossfield, Grinders Cup, Dallas Cowboys, White/Black and Pink Chevrons
  3. Awesome opportunity and my first driver was a Ping! - James - Illinois, USA - Callaway Apex CF16 4-AW w/KBS Tour 120 Stiff - 165
  4. The collection has grown a bit and I've updated the first post with a newer picture, but I'll do the same here. Notice there's two golf website balls in that picture, but no MYGOLFSPY! Let's go guys As always if you have one not pictured here I'm happy to trade or buy it from you!
  5. It's not that they are creating "collector's balls" so much as being are just choosing to collect them, much like people do with coffee cups or other random things.
  6. There's actually two different Padres balls. One with the Pentagon and another with a Homeplate shape. Still looking for that one LOL Can you tell me where you found that Grinder's Cup image? That's actually not the ball I was referring to. This one is: Well some have been ebay purchases, but the majority were trading with others. There's a close knit handful of us that takes cares of one another. A lot of these are from private clubs or events. We go to what we can, get as many as we can, and trade with guys who did the same thing with a different one. My collection got started out of the kindness of some guys who just gave me a bunch to get going. The secondary market is just plain stupid and not needed. Yes, you may never get a Whalburger ball, but 80% of the collection I have is from flat out trading. Stars and Stripes can be found in retail easily right now at normal Chrome Soft prices. Don't forget about me LOL
  7. The most prized ball in my collection is probably the Morgan Pressel Evian Championship ball. It was a limited release for a European tournament and very hard to get a hold of. My favorite though is actually not in the picture yet (I have 8 that are in route to me) and that is a Cohiba one. I'm a very avid cigar smoker so that one is just neat to me. I would argue that course coins were originally made to be used, but people started collecting them. That seems to be the same thing with Truvis. A lot of higher end courses have started doing a custom truvis ball and sell them as singles; it's replacing the cheap pinnacle with a logo in that sense. At that point I don't think they are intending for you to play it, but you certainly could. Then you have tournaments that are starting to do them as well and corporations for charity events etc… To me, at least, it seems they are intended to be collected. Through other golf forums, social media sites and everyone's favorite auction site I have search filters set up and check them pretty frequently. I am unfortunately missing a LOT of them. The two I am most actively looking for are "The Grinder's Cup" and the Mark Crossfield ball.
  8. Couple of them in there I am desperate to track down.
  9. There's a good 30 or so that I'm missing I think
  10. No, there are a LOT I am missing
  11. Like the title says, is anyone here a Truvis collector? Just curious to see what you have in your collection. I'll go first
  12. Name - State: Jay - Illinois Handicap: 20 Used a GPS Watch: No Used a Shot Tracking System: Yes, Arccos. Liked the idea, but didn't want to carry my phone in my pocket and editing shots was unintuitive.
  13. Great opportunity here! Name: Jay State: Illinois (plenty of rounds left for me this year) Hdcp: 18
  14. Thanks for the comments everyone! So my X20s do look good at address and I feel good hitting them, but I do seem to have dropped a club in distance over the last year. My primary reason for taking a look at new clubs is the tremendous pricing available to me on them and the X20s would get handed down to my teenager whose new to the game so I view it as a win-win.
