2002 Rafael Palmeiro Texas Rangers signed and inscribed game used bat is from a three-hit outing, including his milestone 2,500th. The bat is an uncracked D-Bat (model unknown), measuring 33.875" and weighing 30.4 ounces, and dating from the 2001 labeling period. Nice use displayed includes residue on the handle and general wear throughout. Palmeiro has signed in 7/10 silver Sharpie with added inscription, "HIT 2498 - 2499 - 2500." Indeed, Palmeiro was a busy man when his Rangers took on the Anaheim Angels on April 16, 2002, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles in a 6-5 loss in 10 innings. The enclosed PSA/DNA LOA verifies the bat as game used for the milestone, though it does not offer an opinion on the signature. The two-time Silver Slugger winner compiled 3,020 hits in his 20-year career, becoming one of just 33 players in history to reach the exclusive 3,000-hit plateau.
