Today’s auction du jour is for a signed game model Gary Carter bat.
The bat is a Louisville Slugger P89 model, stamped with Carter’s facscimilie signature on the barrel and signed by the Hall of Fame catcher. With just over a day and a half left to bid, no one has opened the auction for $99.99.
Carter was my favorite player when I was growing up. He projected an air of confidence (or arrogance, if you weren’t a Mets fan) and always seemed to enjoy playing the game.
