Red can with white text. One white band at top of can, two at bottom. “Spalding Tennis Balls” written at an upward angle in white. “CHAMPIONSHIP” in blue. Spalding logo at top of can with “REG. CAN. PAT. OFF.” underneath. Unique can in that it is a hybrid Type 1 and Type 5. It is a flat top can that has the bead around the top like a domed lid. Even though never opened, the can does not contain any balls. The key is still firmly attached to the bottom of the can. Perhaps is was a prototype can during design changes.
