ABOUT PSA PROBATFACTS™
PSA ProBatFacts™ focuses on the weapons used by many of the most dangerous
hitters in baseball history, their bats. Professional model bats are amongst the
most desirable items in the entire sports memorabilia hobby. They are tangible pieces
of sports history, used by the players to create it. There is something magical
about holding history in your hands and that is exactly what bat collecting is all
about. From Babe Ruth to Willie Mays to Derek Jeter, the greatest batsmen of all-time
are profiled throughout this vast resource.
Each page found within PSA ProBatFacts™ contains crucial information about the
types of bats used by each hitter, as well as the specific player characteristics
that collectors should look for. These are the fingerprints which place these historical
weapons in the hands of each legend. From the unique taping method applied by Duke
Snider to the heavy pine tar pattern seen on George Brett gamers to the unique knob
markings found on some Roger Maris bats, each page contains photo montages which
help illustrate these noteworthy traits.
The individual player pages display multiple images of each bat contained in the
archive, a brief player biography, a professional bat profile for each player listed,
the SMR Price Guide values, noteworthy auction prices realized, links to related
articles and more. It is our intent to offer the most comprehensive resource for
hobbyists as they build and maintain their treasured collections!
