Mike Marshall Rawlings game-used bat signed in blue Sharpie by twenty-one members of the 1988 World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers, including Tommy Lasorda (Mgr.), Kirk Gibson, Orel Hershiser, Mike Marshall, Steve Sax, Mike Scioscia, Tim Belcher, Fernando Valenzuela, Alejandro Pena, Shawn Hillegas, Tracy Woodson, Jesse Orosco, Brian Holton, Alfredo Griffin, Mano Soto, Danny Heep, Manny Mota (coach), and Rick Dempsey. The signatures are all boldly scripted and grade "9" or "10." The bat features the name "Mike Marshall" stamped on the barrel in block letters. The model number ("435A"), as well as the batch code and year code ("068" "8"), are stamped in the knob. Marshall's uniform number ("5") is written on the knob in black marker. The bat displays heavy use, including numerous ball marks, ink transfers, rack marks, and a slight crack in the handle. Flaking affects most of the foil barrel stamping. This is only the second 1988 Los Angeles Dodgers team-signed bat we have ever seen and the first we have offered. The fact that the signatures appear on a bat used by Mike Marshall, one of the key players on the team that season, only adds to its appeal. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200.
