Wielded and autographed by Cincinnati reds outfielder Chris Heisey during his 2010 rookie campaign, this Louisville Slugger T141 block-letter bat hails from a season in which Heisey paced the big leagues with four pinch hit home runs. The (31.3-oz/34) white ash weapon is signed in black marker (7-8 strength, inscribed 28) between the center brand and barrel stampings. Heavy use is evident with ball, bat-rack, cleat and stitch impressions throughout, as well as light pine-tar residue and a tiny crack on the handle. Heiseys number 28 in inscribed on both the knob and barrel end in black marker. Full photo LOA from John Taube, PSA/DNA (for bat only).
An MLB Authentication Services hologram is adhered to the barrel. The online description for the code (LH707003) indicates that this bat was used by Heisey in the May 18, 2010 game between the Reds and Brewers.
