    Description

    1969 Roberto Clemente Game Used & Signed Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9. With a .345 batting average and ninety-one runs driven in during this memorable year in baseball and American history, Clemente remained the primary offensive force in the Pirates arsenal in 1969. Presented is one of the finest relics to derive from that impressive campaign, a signature model Hillerich & Bradsby U1 exhibiting heavy game use and a fading but still legible ink inscription and signature on the barrel.

    The bat exhibits heavy game use with ball marks, stitch impressions, cleat marks pine tar, and a repaired crack on back barrel, with a vintage number "21" on the knob that perfectly matches known exemplars. But, of course, the autographed inscription, "With Best Wishes, Roberto Clemente," placed the relic in the heroic Hall of Famer's hands with 100% certainty. Length of thirty-six inches (36") and weight of thirty-one ounces (31 oz.) perfectly match factory ordering records. It's one of the finest Clemente gamers we've handled. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
