Albert Pujols chase for 3000 hit, game ready baseball MLB auth
This baseball was prepared and specially marked to be pitched to Albert Pujols as he pursued his 3000th career hit. The baseball has a handwritten "40P" in the MLB logo, as all balls prepared to be pitched to Albert were numbered, along with a P for Pujols. The MLB hologram shows that the unused remaining baseballs were labeled with an MLB hologram by the Angels on May 17th. Pujols had secured his place in history on May 4th, on the road in Seattle, with his 3000th hit. Pujols joined Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, and Alex Rodriguez as the only players in baseball history with 600 homers and 3000 hits. This baseball is a cool, affordable piece of history.
