Golf Ball Logo's

Back in the day when me and my brother used to sell used/experienced golf balls to golfers outside the fence of Meadowlark Golf Course we had a repeat customer who wanted nothing but golf balls with logo's on them. He told us it was a hobby and he said he'd by every logo ball we had that he didn't have.

We started to look at every golf ball we got good or bad from raking the lakes because the "logo man" was willing to pay for them. As a kid it was actually kind of fun to look for these balls because we didn't realize all the different kinds of logo's they put on golf balls. I remember seeing an old Disney logo of Mickey Mouse on one golf ball and thought about keeping it, but decided not to. I wonder today if any of those logo golf balls we found are of any value.

I do remember finding some weird looking golf balls with a really different dimple pattern, but didn't think too much about it. Now that I think back they would probably be worth something today, but as a kid you're not really thinking about what a white little golf ball could be worth some day.

Do you collect logo golf balls? If so how many do you have in your collection?
