    Description

    1987 Reggie Jackson Game Used & Signed Bat with Message to Jose Canseco, PSA/DNA GU 8.5. Two generations collided when Reggie Jackson decided to end his career with the same organization where it started. The Bash Brothers had a new member to their team when Jackson signed on in 1987 to teach a younger group of sluggers. Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire were just beginning to establish themselves as stars when the straw that stirred the drink arrived. This Adirondack model 288RJ bat (34.5" and 33.2 ounces) served Jackson during the final stages of his Hall of Fame career. The uncracked stick shows numerous ball marks and blue imprints from American League baseballs on the back barrel. "288 RJ 251 7" is punched into the knob. Jackson sealed the deal with a gold paint pen signature to Canseco: "To Jose, I've enjoyed Being Around You Make Me Happy and Hit 563 Your Pal Always Mr. October" and "Sept 25, 1987." There are a few skips to the thick signature. We checked the box score from the September 25th contest and Jackson walked in his only at-bat. A historic piece of lumber passed on from one diamond hero to another. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.5. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
