Early 80s - Johnny Bench Game-Used, Signed Louisville Slugger Bat (R43 H&B 125)
Fabulous game-used bat from the career of arguably the greatest backstop in major league history; a big statement quantified by a truckload of indisputable statistical evidence: ten straight Gold Gloves, fourteen All-Star appearances, Rookie of the Year (1968), two-time MVP, two-time World Champion, '76 World Series MVP, and on and on and on. His prowess and impact cannot be overstated and neither can the scarcity of genuine Bench gamers, regardless what eBay searches may suggest. They are far and few between, and this is an authentic 34" game-used beauty; a model R43 displaying usage from Bench in the form of cleat marks on the barrel etc. - uncracked but deadwood present. His number "5" is markered on the knob. Bench offers additional provenance in the form of a perfect autograph rendered in blue marker.
