    I am looking for the 3 inch Wilson rubber basketballs for a Midway Hot Shot game.
    Please let me know if anyone has any they want to part with.
    The closest I could find is 3 inch rubber basketball dog toys that squeak.

    I got some similar balls at toys-r-us for $1 each (I can't seem to find them online now, however). They were more plastic-y than the rubbery originals. I had to remove one of the basket's counterweights because they were too light, but they worked great [see video showing the ball details]. I liked to run the game with only 3 of the 5 balls, as it provides less chance to jam-up the mixer motor and I felt the low # of balls penalized really bad shots by forcing the player to wait a bit for them to be shot again.

    I found some rubber type Wal-Mart balls that you can actually fill up with air if they lose air over time at convience store while on vacation in Cabo San Lucas last summer. They are the perfect size and work great! I will have to post a video of them in ACTION!
    I bought all the balls at the store! The clerk looked at my like I was crazy!
    I haven't seen the balls anywhere else.
