Description1980-81 Carl Yastrzemski Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9.5. Long gone are the days where a player stays with one team for an entire career. Free agency and the lure of greener pastures elsewhere have become commonplace in sports. Carl Yastrzemski was a fixture with the Red Sox his twenty-three year career. His 3,419 hits, 3,308 games played and 1,844 RBI's are tops in the team's rich history.
Yaz used this Louisville Slugger model D113 bat (36" and 34.2 ounces) during the twilight of his career in Beantown. The slugger's familiar zig-zag athletic tape is applied to the handle of the uncracked stick. Ball marks cover all areas of the barrel. The knob has "8 Game" which designates it as one of Yaz's cherished clubs. Green bat rack streaks decorate the left and back barrel. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9.5.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
