Celtics on eBay: Danny Ainge’s Blue Jays bat

Posted By Ben Rohrbach On September 2, 2011 @ 4:17 pm In General | No Comments

It’s time to take you into the weekend with the sixth edition of Celtics [1] on eBay. We ask, “Would you pay [a pretty penny] for [current or former member of the Celtics]’ [eBay item]?” Confusing enough? Good. Let’€™s get started.

Last week I actually bid three months of a blogger’s salary (or $20) for Tommy Heinsohn‘s handwritten thoughts from his Hall of Fame enshrinement day in 1986, but someone out-bid me by 50 cents about five minutes before the auction ended. Oh, well. I guess that’s the price you don’t pay. At least I know now that I have a nemesis out there — a Kurt Rambis to my Kevin McHale [2], if you will.

Anyhow, this week’s item is a game-used bat from Danny Ainge‘s storied career as a member of the Blue Jays [3] from 1979-81 — for the low, low price of $350. A brief rundown of Ainge’s time in Toronto: .220 batting average, .264 on-base percentage and .269 slugging percentage. A modern-day Fritz Knothe [4] if I ever did see one.

Would you pay $350.00 for Danny Ainge's game-used Toronto Blue Jays bat circa 1978?
