As many of you know and have commented on, I recently purchased a very nice Pete Rose bat. The bat appears to be traced to 1977-1979. There was also some ordering records that show a hornsby finish R159 that was ordered 5-29-79 and six were ordered. I understand that this is a small number to find a picture of but I have been trying to find any pictures at all with this model. If anyone can find a good quality picture with this bat (it has enough usage there might be one out there) I would be more than happy to send the George Foster AUTO baseball I have listed in the Classifieds. Thanks so much for those that have been corresponding with me to help in this matter.

I think I found one for ya. You can forward that autograph George Foster ball to me! Lol. I was looking for photo matches for my Pete Rose Adirondack bat and found this one (thanks Dewey). It definately looks like your Hornsby R195 used by Rose in 1979 in Phila. Let me know what you think.

It might be tough to get a "photo match" on this bat with the amount of use it has on it.

STYLE match. Yea, I don't think any of use are gonna find a PHOTO match of either of Rose bats from 30 or more years ago. My bad wording.
