Mailday: Memorabilia Edition

 In the mail today is the new coolest thing in my baseball collection. A Chris Iannetta game used bat. MLB.com recently had a 25% off sale, and with my former favorite Rockie on his way the the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in California, or whatever they are called now, I jumped on the chance to pick this up. I usually don't go for memorabilia stuff, but getting it directly from MLB.com, I feel pretty good about it being legit, it's even still got pine tar on it. It's cracked in the handle, so I don't want to swing it, but it will look cool on display once I figure out where to put it. According to the "MLB Authentication Program" hologram, this bat was used by Chris Iannetta on August 23, 2011 against the Astros.  I know for a fact I watched that game because that was Alex White's Rockies debut and I skipped out on all my other responsibilities to watch that game.
