I think its an overseas ball..
--------------------
I never dreamed it would be me, My name for all eternity, Recorded here at this hallowed place Alas, my name, no more my face. "In the line of duty," I hear them say: My family now the price to pay. My folded flag stained with their tears; We only had those few short years. The badge no longer on my chest, I sleep now in eternal rest. My sword I pass to those behind, And pray they keep this thought in mind. I never dreamed it would be me, And with heavy heart and bended knee, I ask for all here from the past: Dear God, let my name be the last.

I'm not sure what happened with the latest batch of these balls, but a couple of proshops in my area have a ton of these in the same color.  Maybe a Storm tech can chime in and shed some light on this!  It's definitely is NOT a blem!!!

From what I understand,

 Many of the new batch of x factors have a a problem with the colors.  They are supposedly selling them from distributors at a dicounted rate.  Just something I heard at the local pro shop.

Sorry to disappoint you all, but I don't think they're even color blems.  We got one into the shop that looked like that, I drilled it, and after about ten games or so, the pink faded into the normal X-Factor red.  I liked the colors too, but now it looks normal.

No, really, I like you.  Now, by all means, feel free to go fornicate yourself with a sharp object.

That's what happens when you leave Storm balls in the cold.  Interesting color combos.

That's what happens when you leave any ball in the cold.  Brunswick balls lose all the color in the track until the ball warms up, and most other balls get patchy.
