Happy Halloween!! The Skull ball was popularized by Janeane Garofalo as The Bowler in “Mystery Men,” the underground classic superhero comedy from 1999 starring Ben Stiller as Captain Furious.
The popular ball has since been reissued. The Skull features a skull inside the core of the ball with a clear-coated polyester coverstock. The result is as fear inducing as anything in bowling could possibly be.

Prices for the ball are very reasonable on the secondary market (eBay and the like) and even with shipping, this ball can be had for less than $100. It would look equally good on the lanes or as a wicked Halloween accessory in the home. Think scary crystal ball? Regardless, it makes me want to go bowling again! Image source: eBay.
