Louisville Slugger model C243 was used by Jeff Branson with the Cincinnati Reds during the 1995 season. The bat shows light to moderate use with a secured handle crack. Several ball marks and seam impressions are visible on the right barrel surface. The handle has a light coat of pine tar and a secured crack with a small piece missing. Branson’s #20 is written on the knob in black marker. Nothing is written on the barrel end. Branson has signed the sweet spot in black marker and he added his #20.
The bat is accompanied by a letter from the Cincinnati Reds Gift Shop dated 11/2/95.
