Perhaps no player in the long history of the Chicago Cubs made a better first impression than Anthony Rizzo: in his first five games after being called up in 2012 he hit three game winning RBI – welcome to the big leagues! Rizzo finished the season with a .285 average and 15 home runs, marking him as the most promising Cubs prospect to come along in more than a decade. Rizzo used this Marucci AR25 Custom Cut-A model bat during that first 2012 season in the majors. The bat displays outstanding use with a handle crack with a missing piece. The barrel shows several tremendous ball marks along with ink transfers and bat rack paint streaks. The handle has a moderate coat of pine tar and the knob has Rizzo’s number “44” and the bat’s specs stamped into the knob and his uniform number is repeated on the barrel end in black marker. This bat comes with a LOA from PSA/DNA (1B17105) for the game use.
