Roberto ‘Momen’ Clemente Game Used Bat Hillerich & Bradsby model S2, from the 1958 season, exhibits evidence of outstanding use with a slight handle crack that has been repaired. The barrel is covered with numerous ball marks and deep ball stitch impressions. Slight grain swelling from repeated ball contact is visible on the left and back barrel. A few cleat marks are visible on the left and back barrel. Green bat rack streaks can be seen on the top, right barrel. On the bottom of the knob is blue bat rack paint. The knob also appears to have been scored and the model number (S2) is stamped into the knob.
The Momen Clemente variation of Roberto Clemente’s game used bats is prized among collectors. ‘Momen’ Clemente bats from the early years of Clemente’s Hall of Fame career are much rarer than his bats from the 1960’s and early 1970’s. A great bat of the immortal Pittsburgh Pirates Hall of Fame right fielder and member of the elite 3000 Hit Club!
The bat is accompanied by our PSA/DNA Letter of Authenticity.
