Will Clark: Rawlings-Adirondack (29.6-oz/33”) “155 B” silver-ring model with a cupped end and black “Smith” finish. Clark has signed in silver marker (“8” strength) on the barrel. The lumber shows excessive use with ball, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks about the barrel, a 5” handle crack and a 10-1/4” layer of athletic tape that lines the knob and lower portion of the handle.

Johnny Damon: Louisville Slugger (30.8-oz/34-1/2”) “C271” Pro Stock model signed near the end of the barrel in blue marker (“9-10” strength) and inscribed “18.” The bat shows heavy use with ball, cleat and bat-rack marks throughout, as well as transposed ball stampings about the barrel, pine-tar residue and scoring on the handle and multiple handle cracks. JSA cert/sticker (for autograph)

Jason Giambi: Louisville Slugger (29.8-oz/33-1/2”) “I13” 1XX MLB Timber model with a cupped end, tan handle and glossy black “Smith” finish on the barrel. Between the silver-colored center brand and barrel stampings, Giambi has signed in silver marker (“7-8” strength) and inscribed “16 – MVP 2000.” The uncracked weapon features a flare knob and shows little use with bat-rack and surface marks throughout.

Alex Gordon: Louisville Slugger (30.6-oz/34”) “C271” Pro Stock model signed in blue marker (“9-10” strength) between the center brand and barrel stampings and inscribed “4.” The bat shows moderate use with bat-rack and surface marks throughout, as well as a lengthy handle crack and missing slice of wood. There are ringlets of athletic tape on the handle’s lower portion.

Randy Johnson: Louisville Slugger (32-oz/33”) Pro Stock model signed in black marker (“9-10” strength) just below the center brand. The uncracked weapon shows no use with bat-rack marks and minimal finish loss on the hitting surface. JSA cert/sticker (for autograph)
