36-ounce, 35 3/4" Louisville Slugger, manufactured to the 1915 specifications of Joe Jackson for a company called Long Gone Collectibles, who produced 500 of these replica "Black Betsy" bats to help defray the costs of maintaining their website devoted to Jackson, and to lobby the Baseball Hall of Fame to allow Jackson's name to appear on a ballot.  Generally in EX condition, as new, with some areas where the black paint has run into the blonde area of the bat.  Otherwise strong.
