Hi, I picked up a GU Stanton Marrucci Bat from a Marlins tent sale last night (9/19/12).

The MLB Authentication code comes back to September 4th, 2012 (a game I went to by the way) as a 6th inning single off of Shawn Marcum.

The bat is broken, and the single was a broken bat bloop single to CF.

He used the same bat in the second inning from what I belive I photomatched (Strikeout) and....

a Fourth Inning HR to CF. (I believe I photomatched the knob)

I also have a self photo I took, of the 6th inning at bat. In addition, I have a photo of the swing where it broke too.

Here's what I have, let me know what you guys think. I wish I could buy that Getty Image I posted, which is of the HR swing.

On another note, what should I do with this tape?
I'd like to remove it to expose more of the bat, and redo it with black electrical tape.
What do you guys think? Would I end up stripping any pine tar under it if I did that?

Thanks and enjoy the pix!

Thank you.

I honesty hate that I have it now- I've started to look for game used items for my collection.

I didn't have much before this one.

as a fellow bat collector leave the tape where it isz at..they do it to keep the bat together if it is broke but not all the way..its a nice addition to have to ur gu items..i do bats.hockey sticks,jerseys..it gets tough to get some players but have fun collecting..
