Does anyone know the name of this ball puzzle and if it's rare? I found it in an eBay auction and want to know how much it's worth.

It is an impossiball. It functions like a kilominx. It isn't that rare, and most of the time you can get it for about $20-$30 USD.

Doug Hofstadter wrote about it in his Scientific American article on the Rubik's Cube. As I recall he claimed to be the fastest solver of it or something like that. I still have mine from then.

Is this the first fudged twisty puzzle?

I believe so. I wonder how long those rubber mushroom pieces will hold up over time. Last I tried mine it was working fine, but that was 5-10 years ago.
