    1998 Mark McGwire Game Used Bat, Signed. No sports figure had more eyes trained upon him in 1998 than the red-headed giant of Busch Stadium, who led fellow National Leaguer Sammy Sosa on a chase for the single-season home run record. Here we present a Rawlings Big Stick from that historic year, one that made a nation hold its breath every time it left Big Mac's shoulder. All specs are precise to exemplars, from the "Mark McGwire, Cardinals" in block lettering on the barrel, to the "MAC25 98" coding stamped in the knob, to the length and weight of thirty-four and half inches and thirty-one ounces respectively. Ball strikes and cleat marks dot the barrel, with remnants of pine tar painting the handle. A perfect blue sharpie signature from the bat's former owner appears on the barrel, along with an authenticating sticker from Steiner Sports. MEARS A5. LOA from PSA/DNA.
