Got lucky today and managed to pick up this beauty (the one on the right obvs)  :)      The other one came with it, but will probably be sold on

Here are some new bats that I have collected recently.  The Excalibur needs a bit of a refurbishment.  The AB 5 Star and the other 5 Star (VR on the back) were good finds as was the 747.  I always keep an eye out for GM Skippers and DF Colts as these were the bats of my youth.

Some nice ones there mate. The big question on refurbishing vintage is how far to go, personally I keep it very light touch, what are u planning for the Excalibur?

I have some stickers so I will remove the black and orange band.  I have replacement round stickers but I want to keep the originals.  Give it a light sand and fill in a crack in the top of the bat.  I like the patina of most of my bats and I'm a bit hesitant to start on the Excalibur.  Always happy for any advice.
