Just picked up a gamer of Giants' fan favorite Hunter Pence. A guy who deals in a lot of Giants gamers told me Pence and Brandon Crawford bats are very hard to find. My experience has borne that out. Other players from the Giants' 2010, 2012 and 2014 Championships are not nearly so scarce (e.g. Posey, Sandoval, Scutaro, Belt, Huff, etc). This bat has a production date of 1-18-2012...Hunter didn't get to the Giants until the trade deadline...but his autograph has an "8" with it (his Giants number) and there's an 8 in the cupped end, so I'm gonna say he didn't break this bat out until he got to SF.

Default Mail day!

Awesome pick ups for me this month.

A Mike Piazza bat, and I got my Bob Fothergill bat back from PSA. Had Fothergill for a while, but finally got around to having it checked out.

I wonder what the little scoring is? Maybe he was keeping track of his hits?

Nice couple of bats! Especially drawn to the Fothergill. You don't see one of those everyday. Is it from his days with the Tigers?

Hi Mark,

I believe that it is from his days with the Tigers. It has the baseline "1" in the "125", so I think I can narrow it down pretty good.

Picked this up recently to add to the Tiger (played 5 games in 1983) collection. He won a WS in 87 with the Twins. Not sure what happened to the registration?

Iím almost certain Iíll never own a bonafide McGwire gamer but I sorta like this broken fungo and the story that goes with it better, anyway.

The story goes that in 1997 at the Kingdome, McGwire was messing around with this fungo during batting practice, trying to see how far he could hit a ball with it. The bat broke. The guy I obtained it from was a child at the time and, with a friend, asked for and received the pieces of the bat.

This caught my eye. Looks like someone bought it. It's more than I've ever paid for a bat but, given the current climate, it didn't seem like an outrageous price.

Here are some bats I picked up at the National. The Soriano has a ton of great use. I already owned the Sheffield but got him to sign on Thursday.


On Friday I went on to pick up these 3 bats. The Kemp shows great use and the Hamilton bat has light to moderate use. The Granderson 2006 World Series bat is issued. It actually used to be mine and I traded it away to the same dealer at the last Atlantic City show. I always regretted trading it and was happy to be able to buy it back.


The Hamilton bat is one of the largest bats I've ever owned. It's 35 inches and 33 ounces, but the knob is so large.

Iím pretty happy to add this Willie Stargell game used bat to my collection. It takes me one step closer to my goal of obtaining a bat from each position player on the 1971 Bucs roster who batted and played at least one inning in the field. I still need Carl Taylor and Bill Mazeroski.

Thanks Mark and Jim! I have had a lot of help from some great sources. I found a Maz but wonít be able to add it until November. Carl Taylor is actually Steve Blassí brother in law. Iím going to ask him to call Mr Taylor to see if he happens to have any of his old bats laying around the house. I figure itís worth a shot.

I’ll be on the lookout for you…..very exciting! At one time I had the entire ‘61 Yankees ( position players ) and Whitey Ford as well - also had the ‘96 and ‘98 Yankee teams and the ‘77 and ‘78 Yankee teams including George Zeber….I was obsessed….sold all of that to buy my farm….miss them dearly….

But I am working on the ‘69 Mets currently…..just missing Ed Charles and Art Shamsky….

Thanks! Sounds like an epic collection you had but you canít complain about using it to fund a purchase like that!

Jimmy C, Mike got it right. Those Yankee team bats, in themselves, would make up a fantastic collection. One thing that makes this hobby interestng and challenging is that there seem to be as many great collectors as their are desirable bats. It's too bad that you let them go, but at least you followed the principle that we don't give up our favorite bats until we buy the farm.

Always have loved team bat collectors!!! I completed the 1955 KC A's, 1967 KC A's, 1969 Royals, 1976 Royals, 1980 Royals, and 1985 Royals. Hurt me a little when I let them go but still have enough bats in my house to drive my girlfriend crazy

LOL - I do miss them, but it was worth it for sure.....And what's funny is that I left baseball card collecting hard around 1986 and got into game used bats then.....Had over 300 in the collection at one time including the team sets mentioned....Now, I love game used jerseys more even though I still have quite a few pieces of lumber laying around....What's even more interesting is that I have jumped back into cards again - focusing on sets and singles from when I was 8-12......

Got to collect something I guess! Probably always will...

Jim if I remember correctly you purchased my extra 1955 Enos Slaughter gamer years ago.

Mike, I had 2 Vic Powers. One with Powers and one with Pellot.

From memory, the Slaughter was a nice piece of lumberÖ..

Iím looking for some ideas. I completed my 1971 Pirates bat run. There are 18 total bats in my collection. Iím considering building a display case. Before I do I was curious as to how others display their bat collections.

I sold my bat collection to focus on flannels, but I kept one of my bat racks up. The plan is to limit my bats to no more than 10, and in time, have them be the 10 most meaningful, yet inexpensive, bats I can acquire.

I made this rack myself. It's simple, the tubes protect the bats, they are easy to pull out and put back (velcro stickers hold them in place,) and since 1967 was the first year I collected cards, I display them with the bats. You could build this for less than $25.00.

By the way, Ryan helped me when I was collecting bats, he then helped me sell many of them for good prices, and earlier this year he (Crown) sold me one of my favorite flannels - a road NOB Etchebarren. Ryan, thanks yet again!

Thanks Mark I appreciate your response. I like that idea. However, Iím likely going to pay someone to construct something for me large enough to house all 18. I am terribly inept when it comes to using tools and Iíd like to keep all of my fingers.
