The Mets announced on Tuesday a game-used merchandise agreement with their star rookie first baseman, Pete Alonso.

The deal is said to be the first of its kind in Major League Baseball, in which a team and one of its players partner for exclusive, autographed game-used items.

The Alonso items, including balls, bats and batting gloves, will be available through Amazin' Memorabilia, both at and at Citi Field's Amazin' Memorabilia Shop.

The Mets will donate net proceeds of all items on Amazin' Memorabilia to the Mets Foundation.
