Plucked in the opening round of the 2005 Amateur Draft, Ryan Zimmerman did not disappoint, delivering 20 homers and 110 RBI to earn runner-up status in the 2006 Rookie of the Year balloting. This Louisville Slugger (32.5-oz/34) "H238" block-letter bat was employed and endorsed by Zimmerman during that rookie campaign. The uncracked weapon shows solid use and is Graded PSA/DNA GU 9. Between the center brand and barrel stampings, Zimmerman has signed in black marker (9 strength) and inscribed Game Used 2006. Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA. More on our website.
Use characteristics include ball, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as substantial remnants of a gripping agent on the handle and a black marker notation of 11 on the knob.
Note: the PSA/DNA full photo LOA attests to the bats authenticity. The autograph comes with an MLB Authentications hologram, which is adhered just below the barrel stampings.
