Description

Steve Garvey's game-used circa 1976 Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger G154 personal model baseball bat, featuring the bicentennial brand (Liberty Bell with baseball bat and "1776-1976, National Pastime") and his facsimile signature on the barrel; also signed below in black felt tip, "My best wishes, Steve Garvey," with a removed inscription above. The flame-burned ash bat measures 35″ long, weighs 33.7 ounces, and has his number ("6") written on the knob in black felt tip. It is uncracked and exhibits excellent evidence of use with a moderate pine tar coating, several ball marks and stitch impressions, and some black ink transfer. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. Well-established in the middle of the Los Angeles Dodgers' lineup by 1976, Garvey hit .317 with 13 homers and 80 RBI, making the NL All-Star team and playing Gold Glove defense.
