Following is the link to the MEARS auction (now closed) for this black Frank Thomas LVS P72 bat that I believe is a promotional bat.

Please note in the description that it states "Bat receives 5 points for matching player records." I emailed Troy to request the detail regarding the match to Frank's records and this is the response that I received:

"We do not have complete factory records for Frank Thomas. I made our assessment based on known store model Frank Thomas bats and player traits."

Maybe this really is game used, but I would like to see it confirmed by Brian as too many authenticators are misleading collectors with inaccurate statements in their LOA/COAs.

I have only EVER seen an LVS in Frank's hands 3 times: someone else's blonde LVS from 90/91, the blonde block letter THOMAS from 91, and the gwynn finish FRANK THOMAS from 95. Can anyone find any proof of him using a black P72?
