Remarkably consistent and a Reds fan favorite through and through, Hall of Famer and Cincinnati native Barry Larkin most likely employed this Cooper bat in a spring training game or exhibition in the late 1990s. The black Pro 100 bat shows evidence of outstanding use including a crack that extends from the handle to the center branding and multiple ball impact marks. The handle is lined with a light coat of pine tar and the knob has been colored in using Sharpie. An intriguing collectible for Reds or Hall of Fame bat collectors.
