Description



Enhance your arsenal with this “Baker’s Dozen!” Included are (10) 1970s-1980s tried and true gamers, as well as (3) retail models autographed by their Hall of Fame subjects. Includes:
 

AUTOGRAPHED BATS:

 

Bob Doerr Hillerich & Bradsby (35”) retail signature model bat signed in blue marker (“8-9” strength) and inscribed “HOF 86” between the center brand and barrel stampings

 

Stan Musial Hillerich & Bradsby (34-3/4”) “M159” retail signature model bat signed in black marker (“9” strength) and inscribed “HOF 69” between the center brand and barrel stampings

 

Duke Snider Hillerich & Bradsby (35”) “C117L” retail signature model bat signed in black marker (“7-8” strength) and inscribed “The Duke of Flatbush” between the center brand and barrel stampings

 

GAME-USED BATS:

 

Don Buford 1969-1972 Hillerich & Bradsby “O16” (35”, 38-oz) signature model; uncracked, the lumber shows light use with bat-rack and surface marks throughout, as well as scoring about the handle.

 

Jack Clark 1983-1985 Louisville Slugger “M253” (34”, 34.2-oz) signature model; uncracked, shows minimal use with at-rack streaks.

 

Dustin DeLucchi 2000-2006 Louisville Slugger “C271” (34”, 32.3-oz) block-letter (last name only) model; uncracked, shows light use with bat-rack and surface marks about the barrel. DeLucchi played at various minor league levels from 2000 through 2006.

 

Green 1980-1983 Louisville Slugger “S207” (34”, 34-oz) block-letter (last name only) model; appears to be uncracked (a 13” layer of athletic tape lines the handle) and shows heavy use with ball, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout, as well as grain swelling on the hitting surface and a black marker notation of “26” on the knob. This was likely used by a minor league player, as no Major League player named “Green” during the referenced labeling period wore number “26.”

 

Bobby Grich 1987-1989 Rawlings-Adirondack "257B" (34-1/4", 32.8-oz) block-letter blue ring model; uncracked, the bat show no use and features a black marker notation of "4" on the flare knob. It is unclear as to why this bat was issued to Grich, as it was turned during the referenced labeling period, although Grich had retired after the Angles' 1986 ALCS loss.

 

Pedro Guerrero 1980-1983 Louisville Slugger “M110” (35”, 32.2-oz) block-letter (last name only) model; uncracked, shows light use with bat-rack and surface marks on the barrel, as well as a vintage black marker notation of “28” on the knob.

 

Roy Howell Louisville Slugger “M159” (34-1/2”, 33.3-oz) signature model; uncracked, the bat features a hickory finish and shows solid game use in the form of ball and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as grain swelling about the barrel and a handwritten notation of “HAC” on the knob. There is a small chip along the knob’s perimeter.

 

Reggie Jackson 1983-1985 Louisville Slugger “J93” (34-1/2”, 35.2-oz) signature model; the uncracked weapon features a deep brown finish and shows minimal use with scoring about the barrel. During the referenced labeling period, Louisville Slugger factory records confirm the shipment (to Jackson) of more than 200 “J93” models with a hickory finish and weight/length specifications found on this model.

 

 Al Unser 1950-1960 “S2” (35”, 36.4-oz) signature model; phenomenal use is evident with ball and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as grain swelling and checking on the hitting surface. There are vintage tape remnants which were applied to mend a small H-shaped handle crack. It is unclear as to the capacity in which Unser used this bat, as he did not appear as a player after the 1945 season. Between the center brand and barrel stampings, Unser has signed in black marker (“9” strength). 

 

Del Unser 1980-1982 Louisville Slugger “P72” (35”, 32.6-oz) signature model; uncracked the white ash lumber shows solid game use with ball and stitch marks throughout, as well as a black marker notation of “25” on the knob.
