Reggie Jackson's game-used circa 1977-1979 Adirondack Big Stick personal model baseball bat, engraved on the barrel with his name. The ash bat measures 34.5″ long and weighs 33 ounces, and is engraved with the model number "288RJ" on the knob, which is marked in black ink with his number, "44." It is uncracked and shows excellent signs of use, including slight grain separation from repeated ball contact, several ball marks and stitch impressions, clear marks, and bat rack streaks. Accompanied by a letter of grading and authenticity from PSA/DNA, grading it as "PSA/DNA GU 8.5."
Jackson started his legendary five-year stint with the New York Yankees in 1977, the year he earned the moniker 'Mr. October' with his World Series heroics. In the three-season period from '77 to '79, he averaged 29 homers, 99 RBI, and batted .285 in the regular season. More importantly, he led the Yankees to championships in 1977 and 1978, whacking a grand total of nine postseason home runs in that span. A great gamer from Jackson's most prolific period in pinstripes.
