Armando Benitez Signed NY Cubans Jersey
Date: July 15, 2001
The Mets wore New York Cubans jerseys on several occasions during the 2000s to pay homage to the Negro League club. Armando Benitez signed this jersey likely from a 2001 outing against the Toronto Blue Jays, who wore 1930s jerseys of the Chatham Colored All-Stars from Ontario, Canada. The Mets won over the Blue Jays at home, 6-2.
