    1985 Pete Rose Game Used Corked Bat, PSA/DNA GU 10. Pete Rose's run to the all-time hits record involved every advantage he could think of. At the age of 44, the wheels were starting to slow down and those sure hits were lazy groundouts. So how did Rose combat the effects of Father Time? He corked his bats to get that little extra edge against his competition. Offered is one of the few corked Rose gamers to surface on the open market. The uncracked model PR4192 Mizuno bat shows outstanding use characteristics and undoubtedly helped Rose in his pursuit of Cobb's record. Ball marks and stitch impressions, music to any bat collector's ears, are visible on the right and back barrel according to John Taube's research. Another unique Rose trait is the fact that the left barrel has been sanded down. Five tape rings are administered to the handle. Rose sealed the deal with a signature and "1985" reference in silver paint pen. PSA/DNA Bats GU 10. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
