    1989 Ken Griffey, Jr. Game Used Rookie Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8.5. One of just twenty-nine Major Leaguers to have played in four different decades, Griffey is expected to earn easy first-ballot Hall of Fame enshrinement next year, when this particularly special relic should enjoy a significant value spike. It dates to the first months of that long and decorated career, one of just a handful of gamers supplying that coveted rookie-season pedigree. It is Griffey himself who makes the bold assertion, as his bold silver sharpie signature on the barrel is followed by the notation "8-20-89," the day the bat was presented to an executive at Mill Creek Sports, the memorabilia company long affiliated with the superstar outfielder.

    The Rawlings Big Stick 255B is uncracked and exhibits evidence of moderate use, with several ball marks and stitch impressions visible on the front and back barrel. The special vintage is further assured by the stamping on the knob, supplying the model number, the order number, and a number "9" for "1989." The absence of grip tape is also a key rookie trait, as period photography supports. Length of thirty-four inches (34") and weight of thirty-one ounces (31 oz.) are correct for Junior. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.5. LOA from Mill Creek Sports. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
