This RARE item is a GAME USED Autographed GOLF BALL from 2009 MVP Albert Pujols. Ball is a Titleist with Albert Pujols name printed in red on it. Ball is also signed in black sharpie nicely. Ball was used at the Michael Jordan Golf Tournament in the Bahamas in 2009. NICE item from the 3 Time NL MVP. The seller stated " Pujols is a very tough signature in person but at the golf tourney he was a little more laid back but still personalized most of the stuff he got".
Have you ever seen one of Albert's Golf Balls signed? Let me know if you have seen one since this is the only one that I have seen.
