Tony Armas 1980-1982 Game-Used Bat: an Adirondack (34-oz/35”) “246A” green-ring block-letter model whose heavy use attributes include ball, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout, as well as grain swelling/checking about the hitting surface, a hairline handle crack and a black marker notation of “20” in the knob.  

 

Don Baylor 1980-1983 Game-Used Bat: a Louisville Slugger (36.2-oz/35”) “R161” uncracked signature model with moderate use characteristics including ball and surface marks about the barrel, excessive scoring on the handle and a black marker notation of “25” on the knob.

 

Bo Diaz 1978-1979 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (37.4-oz/36”) “C243” signature model war club; excessive game use is evident with ball, cleat, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout, as well as scoring on the handle and a black marker notation of “16” on the knob.

 

Larry Hisle 1977 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (33-oz/35”) “R161” signature model; shows moderate to heavy use with ball, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout, a 6” handle crack and a black marker notation of “9” on the knob.

 

Chet Lemon 1977-1979 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (34.6-oz/34-1/2”) “K48” signature model with moderate use attributes including ball, bat-rack and surface marks on the barrel, pine-tar residue about the handle and a handle crack whose length is obscured by a 3-3/4” layer of electrical tape.

 

Amos Otis 1977-1979 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (32.6-oz/35-1/4”) “S219” uncracked signature model with a flare knob and moderate use characteristics including ball and stitch marks on the barrel, scoring on the handle and transposed ball stampings on the hitting surface.

 

Merv Rettenmund 1978-1979 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (32.7-oz/34-1/2”) “S207” uncracked signature model with a cupped end. Heavy use shows in the form of ball, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout, as well as scoring on the handle and a black marker notation of “8” on the knob.

 

Willie Stargell 1977-1979 Game-Used Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (38.1-oz/36”) “K44” uncracked signature model; heavy use is evident with ball, bat-rack and cleat marks about the barrel, as well as scoring and pine-tar residue on the handle and a 9” layer of athletic tape. Note: while factory records show shipments of 36” “K44” models to Stargell in all three years of the referenced labeling period, a tape outline on the barrel and a black marker notation of “35” on the knob suggests that the bat was used either by Stargell and/or teammate Manny Sanguillen during batting practice.
