Greg Maddux is one of the greatest pitchers of our generation, and of all time! However, even though he was a great pitcher, pretty good fielder (18 Gold Glove Awards), he could handle the bat a bit! During the 1992 All-Star Game, Rawlings manufactured ONE bat for Greg Maddux. ONE! In fact, Rawlings made only one bat for Maddux his first seven seasons in the major leagues. This is that bat.

The 34-inch, 31.7-ounce un-cracked Rawlings block letter 256B model bat has “GREG MADDUX” and his team name “CUBS” engraved on the barrel and contains rack marks and several ball and stitch markings. The knob has the stamped model number “256B” and his number “31” written in black marker. According to the PSA/DNA LOA, “a notable feature of this Greg Maddux professional model bat is the absence of a year code and order number stamped on the knob. After 1980, bats manufactured without year codes and order numbers were produced for World Series and All-Star Games.” PSA/DNA contacted the manufacturer and were advised they made one bat for Greg Maddux during his first stint with the Chicago Cubs. The single bat was produced for the 1992 All-Star Game.

This is the only Rawlings bat made for Maddux, produced for the 1992 All-Star Game. Although Maddux didn’t get an opportunity to hit in the All-Star Game (not many pitchers do get a chance nowadays), he obviously used it in batting practice. Maddux has signed his name in black marker on the barrel. This is a tremendous one-of-a-kind bat, for one of the greatest pitchers of our time. This comes with a from PSA/DNA (1B07388) for the game use and a COA from Beckett Authentication (H39771) for the signature.
