This ball on sale is the famous T-model which is the most well known pre-adidas World Cup ball of all time. Uruguay played the majority of its matches with such T-model balls in the 1930 World Cup until they faced Argentina in the final match. Since Argentina also wanted to play this match with their own ball (which was a regular 12 panel ball), they played the first half of the match with the Argentinean ball and the second half with the Uruguayian ball. The role of the balls became crucial since Argentina won the first half 2-1 but Uruguay came back into the game and finally won it with their T-model 4-2 and became the first World Champions.
