The Soccer Ball
The ball dates to ancient times when sculls, round objects, animal skins, or a pig’s bladder were used. In 1855, Charles Goodyear created the first vulcanized rubber soccer ball. In 1862, H.J. Lindon introduced the first rubber bladder that was inflatable, which made the ball easier to control and kick without losing its shape.
