Autographed patent print of 1st paintball gun
The FIRST paintball game was played in 1981 by Charles Gaines, Bob Gurnsey and Hayes Noel. This was the “birth” of paintball and marks the most important event in paintball history.
The gun used for the “birthgame” of paintball was the Daisy Splotchmarker invented by James C. Hale. The Patent (#3,788,298) was filed on June 19, 1972 and granted on January 29, 1974.
Most refer to this gun as the Nelspot which is the name/brand adopted by paintball enthusiasts and product distributors AFTER the first game and after a few minor modifications.
You can own a piece of this history! My name is Nathan Greenman and I worked for Brass Eagle/Daisy for over a decade, and along the way I acquired several (18 X 24 inch) patent prints signed by James C Hale.
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or 479-366-6720 $100 each. (Limited supply)

those are real signatures. I was working for Brass Eagle when it was still owned by Daisy BB guns.....they made 50 of these that were framed with a fully functional gun....I have one of that version in my dining room....
see above....at the time the 50 cases were made......James Hale signed additional copies of the patent prints for promotional events....this was back in the early days of Brass Eagle
