The Mint grade balls are in excellent shape and have only been played 1 or 2 holes. These balls do not exhibit any scuffs, fading, or wear. These balls may have a logo and/or pen marking.
The Near Mint ball shows slight wear and tear which may include some fading to the logo or ink mark; anything that does not affect the integrity and performance of the ball. Overall these are high-quality balls with a lot of play left in them.
