Default Pete Rose Bat Specs

Hello, I'm very much a rookie when it comes to bats. I'm interested in what is professed to be a Pete Rose game used bat. The bat is 35 inches long and has Genuine S2 with Rose's burned signature underneath and Louisville Slugger underneath the signature. The center brand reads Louisville Slugger 125 Hillerich & Bradsby Co. Made in U.S.A. Louisville, KY and has the Powerized mark. Pete's number 14 is written on the knob.

Is this at least a game model bat? I would appreciate any help you could offer.

Thanks,
Mike

Probably would have to put up some pictures, including the knob for anyone to give you a good opinion.

Sounds like a 1977-79 H&B index bat. There's been speculation that Rose had used the S2 later in his career since he ordered it early on, but during that era his H&B "go to" model was the R195.

Watch out for later era (like the 80's maybe?) Pete Rose S2 bats. I think he (or someone) ordered a bunch for shows and promotions.

Here is my Rose S2. It is from the late 70's, and doesn't match Rose's ordering records, but does match team ordering records.
That means that people would consider this an index bat, not a true Rose "gamer". However, I love index bats, and think they are a fantastic alternative to paying full price.
