Jai Alai Remonte Cesta Punta Ball Leather
Ball used for Pelota, probably the version known most notably as Jai Alai but is know in the Basque Country as Cesta Punta; ball is white leather with stitching that is like that of a baseball but instead of pronounced protrusion, the stitches are closer to the face of the ball; the leather is worn and is discolored in some areas; on one side is the word "Remonte" in worn blue lettering , which is another name for the sport Jai Alai; on the opposite side is a circular logo which is illegible; stitching is with orange string under the leather; found in CS1.Row3.SEC2.SHF4 by Jeff Washburn on 6/2
