    1969-71 Curt Flood Game Issued Bat. An entire generation owes a debt of gratitude to Curt Flood. It was Flood who tried to force baseball to eliminate the reserve clause which bound a player to a team. While unsuccessful, Flood's court case did set the precedent for free agency not long after. This Hillerich & Bradsby model W272 bat (34.5" and 31.4 ounces) was issued between 1969-71 but never saw on-field duty. It was probably secured from the bat rack and gifted. One black bat rack streak appears on the barrel. LOA from PSA/DNA, Authentic.
