174K for a shirt nobody knows for sure is indeed the same one. See how easy it is to rob you rubes of insane amounts of money for nothing.

"Brett will be recognized by the younger generations for one specific mishap in his career: the pine tar incident."

that is not a bad buy. this is an iconic moment in sports. KC all of us black white rich poor whatever can rally behind the glory of the memory of the Pine Tar Incident!!!!

a guy wrote a book about it. i recall from it that that bat brett had over-tarred was itself something special. Brett had some connect at the Louisville slugger factory to keep an eye out for promising stock. the ash wood for that bat had only seven grains. so like evidently a really grainy bat has like twelve or thirteen and a good hard bat that withstands breaking has like nine or ten, but Brett had this like genetic freak piece of ash that was truly special, and it is why he kept using it so much and so long and how it acquired so much pine tar. really it was just smearing and migration of the tar and oil it wasn't applied past the legal spot. radish has spoken.
