Description

By now, we all know Bo. It’s difficult enough to play one professional sport, but to excel in two, shows unbelievable versatility. Bo Jackson was invited to showcase his gift in the 1989 All-Star Game. Jackson set the flow of the game with a monstrous home run, stolen bases and remarkable catches. The superstar heartily earned the MVP award for his crowd mesmerizing play. This Louisville Slugger (model J93) is one of two bats that were shipped to Bo on July 6, 1989 for the All-Star Game. The bats are immediately identifiable because of the large stamping of “Louisville” on the back barrel. 1989 was the only year Louisville Slugger incorporated this type of labeling on All-Star game bats. This barrel stamping was repeated for 1989 World Series bats. The bat measures 341/4” and weighs 33.8 ounces and displays outstanding use. Clearly visible on the barrel are blue and several red ball marks. Please note that the balls used in the ’89 All-Star Game were stamped with red ink. The bat is uncracked and has excellent player characteristics which include “Bo” on both ends in black marker as well as a familiar pine tar application to the upper handle. The consignor had a fire at his residence and there is noticeable smoke staining to the barrel. We are revising the writeup on the bat because its authenticity has been questioned by the owner of the second All-Star bat, who indicates that he has photo documentation of Jackson using his bat. While we make no claim that this bat was game used by Jackson during the 1989 Mid Summer Classic, we cannot overlook the red ball marks appearing on the barrel. The bat is authentic in every respect and it is our opinion it was used by Jackson at least during batting practice and in all probability during the second half of the season. This bat represents one of the highlight moments of one of baseball’s and football’s top phenomenons.
