This bat possesses nice use in addition to orange bat rack marks. The bat has been authenticated by PSA/DNA and has the number 15 written on the knob in addition to a light coat of pine tar. This game used S44 baseball bat dates from the final days of a career that ended much to soon, 1977-79. This was arguably the most memorable period for Munson, with the Yankees winning back-to-back in 1977-78 and primed to contend in 1979 before the season was derailed by the tragic passing of Munson. This gamer features ball marks on the left barrel, orange bat rack streaks, a light coat of pin tar to the handle & "15" written in black felt tip marker on the knob. Munson gamers, like those of Roger Maris, are more desirable than those of many Hall of Fame players and the demand far outweighs the limited supply today. Munson's tragic death in 1979 remains one of the darkest days in Yankees history and, not surprisingly, signaled the downfall of the team's 1970s dynasty. Today, Munson's number "15" has been retired along with those of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle, and his plaque hangs proudly alongside other Yankee immortals in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium. In deference to his memory, Munson's locker remains empty in the Yankee clubhouse; a silent tribute to one of the greatest players in team history. This legendary lumber measures 35 inches in length and weighs 33.7 ounces. Accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from John Taube/PSA/DNA with a tough grade of GU 7, making this one of the higher graded bats from Munson during the prime of his career!
