Description

As the Detroit Tigers competed in the rugged American League East, these (12) bats were ably employed by Motown sluggers during the late-1980s through 2000. Solid game use is evident throughout. Includes:

Brad Ausmus 1995 Game-Used Bat: a Rawlings-Adirondack (32-oz/34”) block-letter orange-ring model with evidence of heavy use in the form of ball, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout. There are multiple handle cracks and Ausmus’ number “11” is inscribed in black marker on both the flare knob and barrel end.
Brad Ausmus 1999-2000 Game-Used Bat: a Louisville Slugger (31.4-oz/33-3/4”) “M110” block-letter model that shows solid game use in the form of ball, bat-rack and stitch impressions about the barrel, as well as transposed stampings from OML baseballs and an 8-1/2” handle crack that has been secured by athletic tape. In black marker, Ausmus’ number “12” is inscribed on both the knob and cupped end.

Deivi Cruz 2000 Game-Used Bat: a Rawlings-Adirondack (312.4-oz/33-3/4”) “491S” block-letter silver-ring model with a black “Smith” finish. Incredible game use attributes include ball and very deep stitch impressions throughout, as well as transfers from OML baseball stampings, heavy residue of a gripping agent and a 9” H-shaped handle crack. Cruz’ number “8” is inscribed on both the knob and barrel end in silver marker.

Damion Easley 1996-1997 Game-Used Bat: a Louisville Slugger (29.8-oz/33-3/4”) “I13” block-letter model with a black “Smith” finish and silver-colored barrel stampings. Moderate use shows in the form of ball, stitch and surface marks about the barrel, as well as grain swelling on the hitting surface and an H-shaped handle crack that appears to have been mended with an adhesive agent. Easley’s number “9” is inscribed on the knob in silver marker. Additionally, a handwritten “0” is of unknown origin.

Junior Felix 1994 Game-Used Bat: a Rawlings-Adirondack (34.6-oz/34-3/4”) “456B” block-letter white-ring model with a black “Smith” finish. Moderate use characteristics include ball and stitch impressions about the hitting surface, as well as a handle crack whose length is partially obscured by an 11-1/2” layer of athletic tape. Felix’ number “49” is inscribed on both the knob and barrel end.

John Flaherty 1994-1996 Game-Used Bat: an uncracked Louisville Slugger (34-oz/34”) “C271” signature model weapon whose game use characteristics include ball, bat-rack and stitch impressions about the barrel, checking on the hitting surface, light pine-tar residue on the upper portion of the handle and black marker notations of “12” on both the knob and cupped end.

Mike Heath 1990 Game-Used Bat: a Rawlings-Adirondack (32-oz/34-1/2”) “413B” block-letter black-ring model. Signed of use include ball, bat-rack and stitch impressions throughout, as well as a generous coat of pine tar on the upper portion of the handle and black marker notations of “8” on both the knob and cupped end. Additionally, there are transposed blue stampings from OAL Brown baseballs, as well as transposed black stampings from ONL White spheres, the latter suggesting that Heath used this bat during the 1991 season with the Atlanta Braves. The handle’s lower portion is home to scoring and a small crack.

Scott Livingstone 1992-1994 Game-Used Bat: a Cooper (31.4-oz/33-3/4”) “C271” signature model two-toned weapon with a tan handle and black barrel. Heavy use shows with ball marks, surface marks and grain swelling about the barrel, medium pine-tar residue and a 6” crack on the handle and notations of “7” on both the knob and cupped end. These have both been partially omitted by later notations of “35,” suggesting subsequent use by another player.

Lloyd Moseby 1990 Game-Used Bat: a Worth (33.3-oz/34”) “WC115” block-letter model with a black “Smith” finish and evidence of heavy use in the form of ball, bat-rack and stitch impressions throughout, as well as a lengthy handle crack partially obscured by tape and a cork grip handle. Moseby’s number “17” is inscribed on both the knob and barrel end.

Melvin Nieves 1996-1997 Game-Used Bat: a Rawlings-Adirondack (33.6-oz/34-1/2”) “5498” block-letter silver-ring model with a black “Smith” finish. Heavy use is evident with ball, bat-rack and stitch marks throughout, as well as transposed stampings from OAL Brown baseballs. The handle is home to a thick coat of pine tar and a lengthy crack. Soiled athletic tape lines the knob, which is also home to a black-marker notation of “30.”

Matt Nokes 1990 Game-Used Bat: a Louisville Slugger (29.8-oz/32-3/4”) “M110” signature model with heavy use attributes including ball, stitch and bat-rack marks throughout, as well as transposed OAL ball stampings and a moderate coat of pine tar on the upper portion of the handle. The handle is also home to a lengthy H-shaped crack, while there are black marker notations of “33” on both the knob and cupped end.

Gary Pettis 1988-1989 Game-Used Bat: a Cooper (32.2-oz/34-1/4”) “R161” signature model two-toned bat with a tan handle and black barrel. Heavy use is evident with ball and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as transposed stampings from OAL Brown baseballs. The handle is home to light pine-tar residue and a small crack. Handwritten notations of Pettis’ number “24” appear on both the handle and cupped end.
