As he established career bests in home runs (14), batting average (.299) and garnered MVP consideration, shortstop Yunel Escobar used and signed these equipment items during his 2009 campaign with the Atlanta Braves. Includes: Bat a Rawlings-Adirondack (32.8-oz/33-3/4”) “M663FL” block-letter model signed on the barrel (“9” strength) and inscribed “2009 Game Used 19.” Bat is uncracked and shows heavy use. Also included are signed game-worn shoes, batting gloves, wrist bands and a fielder’s glove. More on our website.
Signed Game-Used Bat this Rawlings-Adirondack blue ring model shows heavy use with ball, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as transposed stampings from OML baseballs. The handle is home to pine-tar residue, scoring and a 2” layer of athletic tape. In black marker, Escobar’s former number “19” is inscribed on both the knob and cupped end.
Signed Game-Used Fielder’s Glove a Louisville Slugger “TPX PRO” black-and-red leather right-handed fielder’s model with “Yunel Escobar” embroidered on the thumb’s outer portion. Just below, Escobar has signed in black marker (“9-10” strength) and inscribed “19 – Game Used.” Solid game use is evident with dirt and scuff marks about the pocket and webbing.
Signed Game-Worn Shoes pair of “Nike” black-and-red leather size “11” footwear items signed in silver marker on the outer side of each (left shoe autograph “9” strength; right shoe autograph “8” strength). Escobar’s number “19” is inscribed on the heel of each. The shoes show moderate wear with infield dirt caked about the (9) metallic cleats affixed to the sole of each.
Signed Game-Worn Batting Gloves a pair of Louisville Slugger “TPX” black-and-red leather accessories with “Yunel 19” embroidered to the inner wrist portion of each and an embossed “TPX” logo on the back of each Velcro fastener. In silver marker, Escobar has signed the back of the right glove (“8-9” strength) and the palm of the left glove (“7” strength). Light to moderate use is evident.
