    Description

    2008 Alex Rodriguez 550th Career Home Run Game Used Bat. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Jason Hammel was victim number 550 of the future Hall of Famer slugger, who went deep at the Tropicana Dome to become the youngest ballplayer to reach that gaudy figure. Presented is the signature model Louisville Slugger C271L utilized to pull even with the monster milestone, the relatively light use suggesting it saw little action before or after its date with destiny. A few ball marks dot the barrel, which is flawlessly inscribed in silver sharpie, "Alex Rodriguez, Career HR #550 vs. J. Hammel, Youngest to 550 HR's." Pine tar appears at the uncracked handle. Thirty-four inches in length. Rodriguez bats are admittedly not scarce, so smart collectors turn to special examples such as this when seeking representations with investment staying power. Included is a letter of provenance signed by A-Rod himself, with a photo of the signing. Letter of provenance from Alex Rodriguez. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
