Until 1982 no one ever thought a player would come along that could break Lou Brock’s single-season stolen base record of 118 - the problem was, no one told Rickey Henderson. In 1980 he had become just the 3rd player in history to steal more than 100 bases in a season and broke Ty Cobb’s old American League Record of 96 set in 1915. Then in 1982, Henderson went on a stealing tear that would never be equaled. By the All-Star break, he had 84 steals and when the season ended, he had 130 stolen bases to his credit. To put Henderson’s record in perspective, his total number of steals outpaced nine of the American League's 14 teams that year. Henderson was aided in his record-setting season by hitting .267 and working a league-leading 116 bases on balls.

Used during that historic 1982 season, Henderson’s Adirondack DD26M model bat is un-cracked and displays outstanding use. There are several ball marks and abrasions on the barrel as well as some scuff marks on the ends from contact with the ground. This Henderson gamer is completed by a signature from the Hall of Famer on the white Rawlings ring in blue marker. The bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B16527) for the game use and has been graded a near-perfect GU 9, plus there is a LOA from Steve Grad of Beckett Authentication for the signature.
