Bat has a 1950-1960 centerbrand and dates to Adcock’s career with the Milwaukee Braves, 1953-1962, as the bat was sourced in Milwaukee. Bat measures 34 ½” and weighs 32 ounces, the L5 model was only ordered by Adcock in 1953 while with the Milwaukee Braves. The bat is ½ shorter than Adcock’s available records, but we do not feel this bat is a team index bat and should be classified as a personal model due to the fact the L5 model was quite rare when examining Adcock’s records. Bat shows heavy game use. Final Grade MEARS A7: Five base points for bat being consistent with available factory records, 3 points for heavy game use, minus 1 point for discoloration on barrel. (96X0431)
