2004 Alex Rodriguez NY Yankees Signed Pro Model Bat
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $1,392.00
This uncracked Louisville Slugger signature model "G174" bat shows evidence of outstanding game use with bat rack, stitch, and blue ball transfer marks on the barrel. Grass and dirt particles are stuck to the heavy coat of pine tar on the handle. It has been signed and inscribed by Rodriguez in blue Sharpie ("10") on the sweet spot of the barrel, "Alex Rodriguez/Game Used 2004." We have not been able to find a single photograph of Rodriguez using this style bat in 2004 games, though we have found many photos of Rodriguez using this style bat in batting practice. In actual games in 2004, Rodriguez used black Louisvilles, white Old Hickorys, and Sam bats, though it is possible that he used G174 Louisville Slugger models such as this in a few games. We believe that when Alex Rodriguez writes "game-used" on G175 model bats he is including use in batting practice. Length: 33.75 inches. Weight: 32 ounces. SCD Authentic Grade: A10. Accompanied with an LOA (signed by Rodriguez) and corresponding hologram label (affixed to the barrel) from AROD Authenticated. Additional LOAs from Dave Bushing/SCD Authentic, and James Spence, Steve Grad, John Taube & Vince Malta/PSA DNA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,392.00
