This is a 1994-1996 Minor League Andruw Jones Game Used Bat. The bat features excellent use including pine tar and ball marks.
Andruw Jones game used Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger 125 rookie bat from 1994-1996 minor league era. This was obtained from one of the equipment managers while working for the Danville Braves. A whole collection of bats was purchased from him at the time.
I realize that Louisville Slugger made the Hillerich & Bradsby model in the 1960's. But the Braves equipment manager said Andruw either had it specially made for use or he got it from somebody else and used it. I know Jones father was a great player in Curaçao in the 60 s. Maybe it was his at one time. The equipment manager was sure Andruw used it though. He just wasn't sure if it was 1994, 1995 or 1996. This is extremely rare and probably one of a kind.

This is extremely rare. I have never seen another Andruw Jones game used bat from his minor league days.
Jones should get into the HOF someday based on his 10 gold gloves in centerfield and 434 career homeruns.
This was obtained from a very reputable collector who had a Braves contact. I will include the contact information for the winner.
