Even if you have a professional model Babe Ruth Bat, same size, and model, you would need a letter of provenance from a team official or player to accompany the bat. Provenance is the history of ownership of a particular item. It allows the buyer to secure additional insight as to the origin or chain of custody of the item. A letter of provenance from a fan or stating it is from a collection is not sufficient.
