In a most auspicious start to his big league career, Cincinnati Reds rookie Jay Bruce reached base in his first six plate appearances. Four days after debuting, Bruce hit his first home run, a walk-off shot to beat Atlanta on May 31, 2008. This Louisville Slugger (32.6-34-1/4) S318 block-letter model weapon was brandished and signed by Bruce during that 2008 freshman campaign. The maple lumber is signed by Bruce in black marker (9 strength) just to the left of the barrel stampings. The war club shows excellent game use with ball, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout, as well as transposed stampings from OML baseballs about the barrel and a generous coat of pine tar on the handle. Barely visible through the gripping agent are multiple hairline cracks along the handle. LOA from John Taube, PSA/DNA (for bat authenticity).
