Tan and white can with green text. “encore! encore! encore! Play them again & again” “Extra Long Life TENNIS BALLS APPROVED USLTA”. The encore! ball’s seam came in colors such as yellow, orange, green, and blue for easy identification on the tennis courts. There is a round tennis ball label with orange text “EXCLUSIVE PATENT NO. 3,039,773 ORANGE COLOR SEAMS FOR INSTANT IDENTIFICATION”. The patent number could be a misprint, as the later cans have patent 3.039,733 imprinted on them.
