Any Truvis Collectors here?


Recommended Posts

So I just did a search on eBay. I have realized that there is no way on this earth that I will ever collect these. A 3 pack sleeve of Stars and Stripes, $25. 1 yes 1 green and white Wahlbergers ball. Has 3 bids, and the current bid is $76, Nope, no way, no chance. Have fun collecting these. They are cool to look at but that's about it for me

Like the title says, is anyone here a Truvis collector?  Just curious to see what you have in your collection. I'll go first  

Tom Friggen Watson!  Thanks a bunch to my friends at Callaway Golf.

Awesome collection, thanks for sharing the pictures. My collection, if you can call it that is a blue one, pink one and Masters green lol. Guess I could add a red one and yellow/black one from my bag, haha.

Thanks for the share myndcraft. You got me curious so I went and found photos of the balls you're talking about. For those keeping score at home, here's what I found.

That Padres ball you have is pretty darn cool. I could definitely see myself getting a Mets version to display. The temptation to play them would be extremely high though.

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:

I've been playing these since they came out. I just want to know how you get your hands on some of these? These cannot be from “eBay searches”. These seem like the kind of balls you have to know someone to be able to get.

 

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.

Yup. Should check my facts harder. I just typed "Grinders Cup Truvis Ball" into Google and it was one of the early hits. Turns out that was actually from an ideas thread on the Callaway forum so not an actual ball at all. Upon closer inspection, that's just the Callaway "C" and has nothing to do with Grinders Cup. They must've talked about it earlier in the thread.

Had no idea, myndcraft, that Callaway was creating a collectible. To date I have yellow/black, red/white, pink/white and green/white Truvis. Not collecting, but playing them. Pink with pink shirts, red with red shirt, etc

Before this thread I had seen on the courses the Callaway "soccer ball" , but never heard the word Truvis.

At Callaway's website, this is what I found:

http://blog.maderasgolf.com/2016/04/28/tales-of-truvis-a-q-a-about-callaways-truvis-chrome-soft-golf-ball/

 

I read nothing nothing in the above linked story about the "collector balls". How are these collector version Truvis balls usually introduced-advertised-distributed ?

 

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.

Just came back from Golf Galaxy (pulling launch monitor numbers for my G400 review) and they must have had 200 boxes of the Stars and Stripes stacked near the register. $45 bucks a pop.

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!
