Description

His debut preceded by unprecedented hype and expectations, Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper was true to the grand predictions, winning the National League Rookie of the Year honor and earning an All-Star Game berth at the tender age of 19. Mixing young and old with Harper and skipper Davey Johnson aboard for their first full seasons, the Nats breezed to their first-ever division title. Opponents and intimidation tactics were no match for Harper. Purposely drilled by Phillies ace Cole Hamels in only his eighth Major League game, Harper went undeterred to 22 home runs that year. This Louisville Slugger (31.9-oz/33-1/2”) “C243” block-letter model bat was brandished by the Las Vegas-born star in his 2012 rookie campaign. The weapon features a cupped end and a “Washington Nationals 34” decal affixed to the knob. Excellent use is evident with ball and stitch marks about the hitting surface, as well as pine-tar residue near the center brand and remnants of a red-colored gripping agent on the handle. Last used in the 9th inning of the Nationals’ 8-2 win on July 26 at Milwaukee, the lumber has a 5-inch handle crack incurred as Harper grounded out against Brewers hurler Karmeron Loe. Accompanying is an MLB Authentication hologram and a color photo of Harper holding this bat.
