A holy grail piece for any late 1980s baseball fan of a certain age, this 1989 Ken Griffey Jr. game used and signed bat comes from the fan favorite and Hall of Famer's rookie season in Seattle with the Mariners. Cooper model C271 sources from the 1989 labeling period, measures in at 34", weighs 31.6 ounces and features the standard finish. Fine rookie example shows fine use with light pine tar, blue bat rack streaks, "34 - 31oz" stamp on the knob, a cracked handle and criss-cross tape job seen on many of his bats during his rookie season. Griffey Jr. hit 16 home runs during his rookie campaign and was well on his way to becoming the superstar he is remembered as today. If injuries hadn't plagued his late-career production, who knows what Ken Griffey Jr.'s final statistics could have looked like? The bat was signed and inscribed "24" by the future Hall of Famer and 600 Home Run Club member circa 1989 in bold black Sharpie. Comes with a PSA GU 9.5 LOA for use and PSA hologram for signature.
