Ichiro Suzuki Auto’d Game Used Bat
Mizuno professional model “Ichiro 51” was game used by future Hall of Famer Ichiro Suzuki, during the 2008 season that saw him lead the American League in hits with 213. The bat displays outstanding game use with numerous ball marks and deep ball stitch impressions on the right and back barrel. Several cleat impressions can be seen on the left and back barrel. A moderate application of pine tar coats the upper handle. A crack in the handle that extends into the barrel has been repaired. Ichiro has autographed the front barrel in silver pen.
One of the greatest pure hitters of all time, after 9 seasons with Japan’s Orix Blue Wave Ichiro’s rookie season in the major leagues saw him win the 2001 AL Rookie of the Year award as well as the MVP award. In 2004 he broke George Sisler’s single season hit record of 257 by stroking 262 hits and on his way to a .372 batting average and his second AL batting title.
An outstanding bat of the great Ichiro, accompanied by our PSA/DNA Letter of Authenticity and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Ichiro.
