The toast of the Big Apple as the Mets temporarily passed the Yankees in both the standings and at the gate, Darryl Strawberry posted back-to-back seasons of 39 home runs (good for tops in the N.L. in the latter season). This Rawlings-Adirondack (33-oz/35”) “113A” block-letter weapon was wielded and signed by Strawberry during that two-year period. Graded GU 9.5 by PSA/DNA, the lumber shows amazing game use and showcases Strawberry’s bold autograph (“9” strength) on the barrel. Full photo LOA from John Taube. More on our website.
Outstanding use characteristics include ball, bat-rack, cleat and stitch impressions throughout, as well as a plethora of black-ink transfers from ONL baseballs. The handle is home to a generous application of pine tar and a crack that has been secured by an adhesive agent. Strawberry’s number “18” is inscribed in black marker on both the knob and barrel end. Strawberry’s black marker autograph (“9” strength) resides between the manufacturer’s logo and barrel stampings.
