Card collectors may gravitate toward his 2001 rookie cards, but those who want something connected a little more closely to one of this century’s greatest hitters focus on Albert Pujols game used bats. Finding a real one is more challenging than ever.
Jeff Scott is a collector of Cardinals bats who spends hours studying what Pujols is swinging. It’s an effort that has provided more than its share of challenges.
Pujols’ preferences have changed a few times and so has the way his game-used bats wind up in the hands of collectors.
With authentic Pujols gamers selling for at least a few thousand dollars each, Scott has updated his ‘Buyer’s Guide to Albert Pujols Bats‘, covering use, characteristics, models and manufacturers.
His goal is to “help bat collectors make informed decisions”. It’s worth reading even if you’re not expecting to own one anytime soon.
