  1. From my understanding, the 1962 ball pictured above with the caption “MR CRACK” suggests that the ball is named “Mr. Crack” which is false. The the 1962 Chilean ball’s name is actually just “Crack.”

    The “MR” is equivalent to a trademark ™ or registered trademark ®. The Spanish “MR” is the symbol for “marca registrada” (trademark in English).

    Not that it really matters considering this was most likely the worst World Cup ball to correspond with the event. The ball absorbed moisture and peeled easily. So bad that the ball wasn’t really used. Multiple kinds of balls were used throughout the tournament.

    1. Cool info on the 1962 ball.
      Just when you think that the Jabulani abomination was the worst football in the history of mankind: the ball that destroyed a World Cup…

      Brazuca seems to be a decent ball to play with, not counting the strange color scheme…
