Circa 1970 game used bat belonged to Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente. Weighing 37.8 ounces and measuring 35.0 inches, model G105 is stamped on the knob and the bat has a very clean look. We're referencing this bat as issued is as it shows very little or no use, though it does have a faded 21 written on the knob and barrel end and some marks on the barrel, not from game use. A scan of the PSA/DNA LOA provides a possible clue as to why this specimen may have gone unused. According to the letter, Roberto ordered a G105 at 35" only once, though the ordered weight was 34.0 ounces, making it possible that this bat was unused as it may have been miscut to nearly four ounces above the ordered weight. Unique item from the 18-year veteran, who earned no less than 11 All-Star game appearances and was a 5-time winner of the Silver Slugger award. Comes with PSA LOA detailing the order history mentioned above.
