Missing Pieces and Valuation

A missing piece or pieces to a bat may detract from the visual appeal significantly depending on the size of the piece in question. As a result, these bats are valued less than bats that are fully intact. On the other hand, bats with missing pieces that do not detract from the overall displayability will not detract significantly. For instance, if the missing piece is extremely small or on the back of the barrel where it is not highly noticeable.
