Alfonso Soriano Auto’d Game Used Bat
SAM bat model AS12, from the 2012 season, exhibits evidence of excellent use with a handle crack that has been secured. Several ball marks and ball stitch impressions are visible on the front and left barrel. Ball marks include blue ink transfers. Cleat marks can be seen on all sides of the barrel. Also visible on the bat are green bat rack streaks and streaks from contact with other bats. The handle has been taped approximately 12.5 inches in a criss-cross pattern to enhance the grip and there is a heavy coat of pine tar on the SAM logo. The mark visible on the handle identifies the face grain of the bat. This is a mandatory marking, per Major League Baseball, for all maple bats since January 2009. The length (35), weight (33), date of manufacture (6 14 12), model number (AS12) and order number (2455) are written on the top barrel in black ink. An Alfonso Soriano signature and his number ‘12’ are on the front barrel in black marker. The bat has been authenticated by MLB Authentication Services and their hologram (EK157743) is affixed to the front barrel indicating that the bat was used on August 29th 2012, Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs. A great Cubs bat of the former All Star 2nd baseman!
The bat is accompanied by a PSA/DNA Letter of Authenticity.
