    Mightbe I hav played with Bakelite balls. Crystalate suppozedly were celluloid-based up until 1972. Praps, but praps not.
    If they were celluloid based, then why did they (Endolithic Ball Co) pay royalties to Albany (theusofa) for the use of bakelite.
    I suspekt that Crystalates were Bakelite after praps WW2. If so then the balls must hav been made hard and heavy by uzing a clay filler or something.
