Vada Pinson ended his career with 2,757 hits, just short of the 3,000 hit club and making the case for entry into the Hall of Fame. The bulk of his hits came as a member of the Cincinnati Reds (1958-1968), where he had four 200-hit seasons, leading the NL twice in that category. This Vada Pinson professional model Rawlings Adirondack game used signature model bat has its model number 146X stamped on the knob along with Pinson's uniform number 28 written in black marker. This flame treated ash bat weighs 38 ounces and measures 36" inches in length. It exhibits heavy use with stitch marks, bat rack marks and a 6" handle crack with slight separation. Evident usage of a weighted “doughnut” has left a ring mark on the barrel.
Includes an LOA from MEARS (Graded A7.5).
