GAME-USED LA PRIMERA SERIE BALL, 1996
The Mets and the San Diego Padres met in the three-game La Primera Serie in Monterrey, Mexico in August 1996. This ball was used in the series, when the Mets fell, 2-1. They would travel again in 2000 to Japan’s Tokyo Dome for another international series, this time against the Chicago Cubs.
