Following a lengthy baseball tradition, members of the World Series Champion 1983 Baltimore Orioles Team, along with affiliated executives and dignitaries, were presented with commemorative H&B Louisville Slugger "black bats" in honor of their great accomplishment. Call one of these limited edition beauties your own by capturing this handsome example.
Titled “Baltimore Orioles World Champions 1983” in green lettering, this sleek ebon stick is decked out with an array of gold facsimile signatures and block letter names around the barrel, including Orioles standouts Cal Ripken, Eddie Murray, Jim Palmer, Rick Dempsey, Dennis Martinez and manager Joe Altobelli.
Showing minor traces of wear or factory finish flaws on the knob, the end of the barrel and near the label, this vintage keepsake otherwise comes to bat in excellent condition with pleasing gloss, bold gold stampings and a generally like-new appearance.
(Facsimile signatures are reported as those players being under contract with H&B, while block letter names were not under contract)
