1978 Pete Rose Game-Used, Signed Bat Inscribed to Fernando Gonzalez w/Gonzalez Signed Letter (From Rose’s Hit Streak Season)
Out of stock
Fernando Gonzalez played at the big league level for six seasons. But he was a fan like all of us. Before one game, he approached Pete Rose and requested a bat. The Hit King obliged with this Louisville Slugger model R195 bat (33" and 32 ounces). Rose signed "To Fernando my Good wishes To a Great Guy" in vintage black marker. The use is acceptable with black, red and green bat streaks. There appear to be ball marks on the back barrel and a donut impression on the barrel as well. Slight checking is visible on the barrel end.
Authentication comes vis a Gonzalez signed personal letter. The letter states that he got the bat when Rose was going after Joe DiMaggio’s hit streak. In actuality, the Padres and Reds played August 4-6, the series after Rose’s streak had ended. The bat was most-likely secured during that series although the two played in San Diego Aug. 10-13.
