The son of a little-known pitcher whose Major League tenure lasted just six games, Robinson Cano has enjoyed a decidedly more productive career than did his father. Warranting MVP consideration as he posted a career-best .342 batting mark, Cano wielded and signed this Sam Bat (33.7-oz/34”) “Cano 22NY” block-letter model weapon during the 2006 season. Graded GU 10 by PSA/DNA, the uncracked maple lumber shows excellent use and is signed on the barrel in silver marker (“8” strength). Full photo LOA from John Taube. More on our website.
The two-toned maple bat features a “Walker” finish on the handle and a glossy black “Smith” finish on the barrel. Between the manufacturer’s decal and barrel identifiers, Cano has signed in silver marker and inscribed “22 – game used 2006 season.” Excellent use is evident in the form or ball, cleat, bat-rack and deeply embedded stitch marks throughout. A spiral tape pattern of approximately 9-1/2” has been applied to enhance the grip. Also visible is moderate pine-tar residue and a weighted donut impression.
