Widely regarded as one of the most lopsided trades in MLB history, the pitching desperate Boston Red Sox acquired reliever Larry Andersen from the Houston Astros in late 1990 for a young prospect named Jeff Bagwell, who was at AA New Britain and behind Hall of Famer Wade Boggs and Scott Cooper on the depth chart. Andersen’s career in Boston only lasted until the end of the 1990 season as the Red Sox were swept by the Oakland A’s in the ALCS, while Bagwell flourished in Houston, when he made the switch to first base – winning the 1991 National League Rookie of the Year Award, the 1994 MVP and was enshrined in Cooperstown in 2017.

Offered here is Bagwell’s Louisville Slugger I13 model bat used by the native of Connecticut during the 1991-94 seasons. This bat displays light game use and is un-cracked. There are some ball marks and scuffing of the top barrel and Bagwell’s number “5” is handwritten on the knob in silver marker with a circle around it and also handwritten in silver on the top barrel. Bagwell has signed his name in bold silver marker on the barrel to complete this Hall of Fame gamer. This bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B25717) for the game use and has been grade a GU 7.5, plus a LOA from Beckett Authentication for the signature.
