    c. 1973-75 Vada Pinson Game Used Bat. Compared at a young age to the likes of Aaron, Mantle, and Mays, Vada Pinson may not have had the illustrious career that the aforementioned trio did but 18 years in the bigs with a .286 average and 256 home runs in nothing to be ashamed of. In his first five full seasons he tallied more base hits than Musial, Mays, Aaron, and Frank Robinson did in theirs.

    Offered is a cracked 34.5" Louisville Slugger Genuine Pinson R161 model bat. Mild game usage is evident throughout with ball and bat rack marks on the barrel. Knob features a "V.P." written in black marker. Adhesive residue throughout the sweetspot. Presence of the "®" above the 'D' in "POWERIZED" branding dates the bat from 1973 to 1975, when Pinson played with the Angels and Royals. Letter of Provenance from Kansas City Royals Batboy.
