About the Ball: A very rare (the only one we've seen) prototype (we believe) from the 1998 Joe DiMaggio Day Game at Yankee Stadium. This version as you can see, freatures red and blue laces, as opposed to the Navy Blue laces on the official version. Also, the commemorative logo changed greatly. Instead of the large "5" as the background, the New York Yankees "NY" logo was used.Â To see the official ball that was made for the event, check here.
