    Description

    1978 Dale Murphy Game Used Rookie Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9.5. The Braves fan favorite only made eighteen and nineteen appearances respectively in 1976 and 1977, so it's no overstatement to call this lumber from 1978 a bona fide rookie. The Murph topped all National Leaguers in strikeouts this year, but the heavy use evident on this signature model Hillerich & Bradsby U1 bears witness to the power that sent twenty-three over the outfield wall. Ball marks, stitch impressions and two colors of bat rack streaks appear, as does a moderate coat of pine tar on the handle. Number "3" appears in marker on knob and barrel end. Length thirty-four and a half inches, weight thirty-one and a half ounces. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9.5.
