On board for a personal high $3,300,000 annual stipend in 1991, 39-year-old Dave Winfield mixed 28 homers into 86 RBI as a member of the California Angles. Issued to the Hall of Famer during a season in which he became just the 23rd player to eclipse 400 career round-trippers, this Louisville Slugger "W273" (32-oz/35-1/2”) two-toned war club features a tan handle and black barrel with a silver-colored center brand and barrel stampings. The white ash signature model weapon displays signs of tremendous game use with ball and deeply embedded stitch marks about the hitting surface, as well as transposed blue stampings from OAL (Brown) spheres. The handle is home to a bat-rack streak, pine-tar residue and a hairline crack. On the knob, Winfield’s number “32” (a departure from his familiar “31”) is inscribed in black marker.
