This baseball bat, signed by Clemens, is a rather odd artifact from the late 1980s and early 1990s. Not only is it signed by BoSox that he played with during that time, it's also a "Bush Whacker" bat with caricatures of a bound Saddam Hussein, whom the United States fought during Operation: Desert Storm, on the barrel.
Baseball bat signed "Jody Reed", "Ellis Burks", "Dennis Lamp", "Roger Clemens", "Mike Miller", "Jeff Reardon" and "John Marzano", with 10 unidentified signatures. 34x2½. Worth Handcrafted Bush Whacker Model wood bat from the Tennessee Thumpers with two black stripes. Engraved with "Hand Crafted/BUSH WAHCKER/MODEL" at top of barrel with two identical caricatures of Saddam Hussein printed on barrel. Marzano, Reed and Burks were Clemens' teammates on the BoSox from 1987 to 1992, while Lamp shared bullpen duties with him from 1989 to 1991. Pitcher CLEMENS, born William Roger Clemens in Dayton, Ohio in 1962, won the Cy Young Award a record seven times, six times in the American League (1986, 1987, and 1991 Boston Red Sox; 1997 and 1998 Toronto Blue Jays; 2001 New York Yankees) and once in the National League (2004 Houston Astros). Clemens was also the AL's Most Valuable Player in 1986, a rare achievement for a pitcher. Baseball statistical guru Bill James created a "Hall of Fame Monitor", a formula combining all aspects of a player's record to determine likely eligibility for Cooperstown. A score of 100 = "a good possibility"; a score of 130 - "virtual cinch." Clemens' score was 336 at the end of 2007. Clemens was listed in the 2007 Mitchell Report as a Major League player who had used performance enhancing drugs, including anabolic steroids, but has adamantly denied charges of steroid abuse, offered to take a polygraph exam, and filed a defamation of character suit against his principal accuser, who was interviewed for the report. REARDON, born in Dalton, Massachusetts in 1955, was the only hurler with 20 or more saves each season from 1982 to 1988. He led the majors with 41 saves in 1985. His relief work earned him Minnesota's Most Valuable Player award and a World Championship ring in 1987; he saved two games and won one in the LCS. During the season, he had more strikeouts than innings. A true stopper, Reardon rarely worked more than one inning in any game. He surpassed 30 saves each year from 1986 to 1989, and his 30 saves in 1992 helped him surpass Rollie Fingers in career saves. BURKS, born in Vicksburg, Mississippi in 1964, was a Major League outfielder and DH from 1987 to 2004, mostly with the Boston Red Sox and Colorado Rockies. A two-time All-Star and Silver Slugger and winner of the Gold Glove in 1990, Burks led the National League in slugging percentage, runs, total bases and extra base hits in 1996. He has a career batting average of .291 with 2,107 hits, 352 home runs, and 1,206 RBIs. MARZANO (1963-2008, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) was a Major League catcher from 1987 to 1992 with the Boston Red Sox and 1995 to 1988 with the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners. He had a career batting average of .241 with 191 hits, 11 home runs and 72 RBIs. REED, born in 1962 in Tampa, Florida, was a Major League infielder from 1987 to 1997, mostly with the Boston Red Sox. 1990 was a good year for Reed; he was in the top 10 in American League for hits, singles, times on base and sacrifice hits and led the league in doubles. Reed had a career batting average of .270 with 1,231 hits, 27 home runs and 392 RBIs. LAMP, born in Los Angeles, California in 1952, was a Major League pitcher from 1977 to 1992. He had a win-loss record of exactly 50%, with 96 wins and 96 losses, with a career ERA of 3.93 with 1,975 hits allowed, 915 runs and 122 home runs allowed. MILLER, born in 1972, was with the minor league Jamestown Jammers in 1995. He had a career batting average of .228 with 45 hits, three home runs and 27 RBIs. Lamp's signature is lightly smeared. Light damage to engraving. Otherwise in fine condition.
