    2016 David Ortiz Home Run #517 Game Used & Signed Bat, PSA/DNA GU 10. Most players end their career with a whimper and are a shell of their former self. So how did David Ortiz end his two decade run? Let's just say he wasn't stumbling around the outfield like Mays in '73 or Babe Ruth appearing with the Boston Braves in '35. Big Papi concluded his Hall of Fame career by having a year for the ages. Ortiz's final season resulted in these awe-inspiring numbers: .315 average, 38 home runs and 127 RBIs. He even legged out 48 doubles, the second-best output of his twenty year career. All of this at age 40?

    Ortiz used this Marucci bat (32.7 ounces and 34.5") when he notched home run number 517 on May 30, 2016. His signature and inscription provides authentication: "Game use 5/30/16 HR #517 vs Orioles." The signature has smudged slightly. Ball marks, including blue stamping transfers, are on the right, front and back barrel. The following are engraved on the knob: "04/08/16," "34" and "42." An MLB hologram is placed on the knob while Fanatics and PSA/DNA stickers are on the back barrel. We looked the MLB hologram number and the following is listed: "Game used Marucci Bat. Batter - David Ortiz, Pitcher - Ashur Tolliver, Top of 8, Ortiz homers off of Tolliver using this bat." Approximately 9.5" of Lizard Skins bat grip is located on the handle of the uncracked bat. MLB Authentic HZ989219. Fanatics hologram. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 10. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
