Surely there's a rough average ball park figure, which I'm guessing
the OP was asking for.

$100? $500? $2500? $5000? $10 000? $100 000? $1 000 000?

The length of a piece of string might be infinite in theory and
abstract. In practice there's going to be an average length, which
string users will know the price of (and I guess will be the average
price and length of a ball.)
