81439: 1965-68 Roberto Clemente Game Used Bat.
1965-68 Roberto Clemente Game Used Bat. "The big thing about Clemente is that he can hit any pitch," Hall of Fame pitcher Juan Marichal once explained. "I don't mean only strikes. He can hit a ball off his ankles or off his ear." Here we present a signature model Hillerich & Bradsby G105 dating to a four-year span that twice saw this elite batsman claim the National League batting title. The bat exhibits outstanding use with scattered ball marks and stitch impressions, and a professionally repaired handle crack. Red and green bat rack streaks likewise indicate multiple games of use. Moderate pine tar on handle. Clemente's number "21" is applied in marker to the knob. The length and weight of thirty-six inches and ounces respectively perfectly match factory records for this period, providing top marks for fidelity to known exemplars for a final GU 9 grade. A truly special piece from one of the most heroic men ever to wear the uniform of a Major League club. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9.
