Nike 850 GEO is the official La Liga ball of the 1996-1997 season. In fact, this is a great example of classic Nike design. White noble background and dark contrasting swoosh is a combination that is recognizable all over the world. Nike 850 GEO is a lightweight synthetic leather ball.
Pentagonal and hexagonal panels are joined with strong seams. The seams are so deep it looks like a seamless ball. Nike organized a massive publicity campaign for the ball. In addition, several major championships have signed contracts with Nike. One of the most significant tournaments was La Liga. It was a truly mutually beneficial partnership – the biggest Spanish tournament in Spain got a great ball, and Nike announced their product to the whole world. Today it is a very rare and valuable ball.
