A unique gamer from one of MLB’s most-iconic sluggers is among several game-used pieces up for grabs in the latest Goldin Auctions sale.
It’s not a bat used by Roger Maris, Babe Ruth, Tris Speaker, Albert Pujols, Mike Trout, Ichiro Suzuki or Alex Rodriguez, but all of those stars’ clubs are up for grabs, too, as part of a series of auctions ending this week.
Game-used baseball bats are often some of the most-abused and most-personalized pieces of game-used memorabilia to hit the market.
And, because of the number of bats a player uses in a season, they can also be bargain-priced at times. But in the case of the Old Hickory J143M used by Mike Trout to hit four home runs during 2013? Well, that bat opened at $2,000 and sits at $7,000 after 17 bids with plenty of time remaining … so not every bat can be a bargain.
Check out this gallery of 18 gamers presently up for grabs right now from Goldin Auctions. You can see a larger image, the model specs and the opening bid price once inside the gallery.
