Nobody figured on Albert Pujols being the greatest slugger in this era. In 2001, few thought Pujols would join the Cardinals as it headed north for the baseball season. But day after day, Phat Albert made a case with his hitting. When it came down to the final minor league assignments, manager Tony LaRussa had no choice but to keep Pujols on the final roster. The rest is history. Everyone know nows of the All-Star’s hitting prowess and unmatched work ethic. The offered bat is believed to be the earliest known Pujols game-used bat ever offered. This particular Louisville Slugger TPX model TPX-5 BB9 aluminum bat was used by the great Pujols when he was at Fort Osage High School in Independence, Missouri. One can imagine how many home runs and line drives flew off this bat as Pujols was just beginning to master the art of hitting. According to one story, Pujols actually cracked the bat during game action. Imagine a third baseman starring down the line at Pujols with bat in tow? Leather cushioning surrounds the handle and the barrel end is cupped. To top it all off, Pujols signed the bat “Jose Albert Pujols” a practice he discontinued after his minor league days were done on the barrel in silver paint pen. A PSA/DNA sticker is placed on the barrel end. To our knowledge this is the only single-signed Jose Albert Pujols game-used bat to surface with authentication (signature) by PSA/DNA. A letter from Albert’s cousin Juan Almonte vouches for authentication.
The letter states: “My name is Juan Almonte, I’m Albert Pujols cousin. I got this baseball bat, a black Louisville Slugger TPX-5 BB9 from Albert Pujols father. Albert used this bat during his High School career at Fort Osage High School. This bat is guarantee to be 100% real as I remember back in the days when Albert and me used to go to the batting cages.” The letter is dated 6/22/06.
