Compiled is a collection of game-used bats and jerseys from members of the Texas Rangers. The bats include a black “Pudge” Rodriguez Mizuno Pro (32oz/33-1/2”) and an Alfonso Soriano Ziner Model X356 (33.2oz/34-1/2”). Both bats show extensive game use with player numbers in marker on the knob, ball indentations, pine tar on the handle and/or body and bat rack streaks. The jerseys of Orel Hershiser (Away) and manager Johnny Oates (Home) both show light use with some pilling and fading. The Russell Athletic Oates jersey includes Rangers across the chest, a Texas Rangers logo on the left sleeve, and Oates and 26 on the reverse. Oates has signed the back of the jersey in blue marker (d.2004, “9”). The Majestic Hershiser jersey features Texas logo lettering across the chest, a Texas flag patch on the left sleeve and 55 and Hershiser on the reverse. This jersey memorializes Oates’ unfortunate death with a black 26 on the right sleeve. This lot also includes a valuable limited edition 1999 Louisville Slugger bat (1400/1500) that includes the gold facsimile autographs of Brett, Chylak, J. Williams, N. Ryan and Yount. The Oates signature is accompanied by an auction COA by James Spence Authentications.
