Description

Trouble incorporated from both sides of the plate, Eddie Murray was deserving of MVP honors in several, if not all, of his glorious seasons in Baltimore. This Louisville Slugger (35.8-oz/35-1/2”) “R161” signature model bat was autographed and wielded by the Hall of Fame first baseman during the 1981-1983 labeling period. Graded GU 6.5 by PSA/DNA, the white ash war club shows heavy use and is signed above the barrel stampings in silver marker (“7-8” strength). Full photo LOAs from PSA/DNA and JSA. More on our website.

Evidence of excellent game use includes ball and cleat marks about the barrel, as well as stitch impressions and transposed blue-ink stampings from OAL MacPhail baseballs that Murray frequently put into orbit. There is checking and grain swelling on the hitting surface and a barrel break has been secured by an adhesive agent. The white ash weapon features a deep-brown hickory finish and hails from a three-year period during which Murray finished fifth, second and second in the American League MVP balloting.

The full photo LOA from John Taube, PSA/DNA attest to the authenticity of the bat only. The full photo LOA from JSA attests to the autograph’s authenticity.
