    Game Used Bat Lot of 3 with Harper, Josephson, & Oliver.
    Offered are the following game used bats:

    Tommy Harper: Cracked 35" Adirondack Big Stick Tom Harper A279 model. Heavy wear and usage throughout with multiple ball marks on the barrel. Tape masks the crack on the upper handle. A "21" in black marker appears on the knob, stamping dates the bat from 1968 to 1975, which along with Harper's number means the lumber was used with the Indians, Pilots, Brewers, or Athletics.

    Duane Josephson: Cracked 34.5" Adirondack Big Stick D. Josephson 155B model. Heavy wear and usage throughout with pine tar residue evident on the handle and lower parts of the barrel. Taping around the upper handle to mask the crack. A "24" in black marker on the knob helps narrow the bats date to his final two seasons with the Boston Red Sox, 1971 and 1972.

    Bob Oliver: Uncracked 36" Louisville Slugger Genuine Bob Oliver U1 model. Light-to-moderate usage displayed throughout the bat with the barrel having been heavily taped - likely to hold on dead wood. Stamping dates the bat to Oliver's time with the Kansas City Royals, 1969 to 1972.

    Letter of Provenance from Kansas City Royals Batboy.
