I was making my rounds through the many sites I’m on and saw this baseball up for sale. It comes with a “hologram” and COA from a now prominent company that is traded on the stock floor. They have many stores located throughout the U.S and have vast amounts of tourists visit their locations throughout the year. In the past each store they had was individually owned and operated, and I’m not completely sure if that’s the same today so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. This ball appears to be from the “Marino” era.
