    1998 Ken Griffey, Jr. Home Run #44 Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9. Before getting hurt, the 1998 home run derby was a three-man race. Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and Ken Griffey Jr. were in pursuit of history for the majority of the season. A few minor setbacks derailed The Kid's effort to unseat Roger Maris for single-season home run dominance. Griffey used this very Louisville Slugger model C271 bat (33.75" and 29.7 ounces) when he connected on his 44th home run of the season. The slightly cracked stick has all the attributes of a high-grade Griffey gamer. Zig-zag athletic tape is affixed to the handle, a staple of his bats during the time period. Blue baseball stamping marks are evident on the back barrel and hit/ball marks appear throughout. A handle crack ended the bat's big league duty. Griffey signed the end of the lumber in 9/10 silver paint pen and included a "HR 44 98" inscription. A signed certificate by the future Hall of Famer is included. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9. Certificate signed by Ken Griffey Jr. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
