    looking for advice on selling golf balls

    I have a collection of used golf balls that I'm hoping to sell. The advice I need is how much could I recieve from selling one ball. Would golf balls in near excellent condition go for a dollar and the dirty ones for 50 cents? What about cut and the ones with X's on them? What value would these have?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    I don't think you should look at it on a per ball basis. Look at it like this: presented with what you have, what would you be willing to pay for it? In other words, disregard the fact that some of them are dirty and present them as a batch of used balls.

    "Lake balls" are almost free here, don't expect to get rich.

    I buy used golf balls from a local store...They are priced per dozen, but I can't remember how much they go for. In any case, they are pretty cheap and all in fairly good condition.

    I agree, golf is a lame event(not a sport). You can have more fun with those golf balls if you use your imagination...throw them at bypassing cars, put a whole bunch on stairs and cause bodily harm... use your imagination...the possibilities are endless!

    I don't know. I've had a lot of fun playing mini-golf. Especially late at night, when its all lit up and you have a very special girl with you

    I've never played golf, except mini golf. I just collected golf balls for a short time a couple years ago.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll use properly.

    I played some golf...my grandma gave me some clubs and I found some gold balls so I tryed hitting the balls as far as I could and see what I could hit...after that it just got boring and golf seems an escape from the family or whatever for guys, rich guys at that.
