Louisville Slugger model M253 was used by Dave McKay with the Oakland Athletics during the 1982 season, his last in the major leagues. The bat shows excellent use. Many ball marks and light seam impressions are visible on the left and back barrel surfaces and there is some slight swelling with minor separation from repeated contact. The handle has a moderate coat of pine tar with some heavier transfer and it is cracked. The lower 10″ of the handle has been scored/shaved for grip. McKay’s #39 is tough to see but it is written on the knob in black marker. Nothing is written on the barrel end.
