Spotted a Salix Zeitgeist in use last night - still going strong (I know, I know, you want pics - I'll try to get some).

Recently had a few games after a 12 year hiatus ( overseas not prison!) and came across the site as my old 15 year old cherry covered Newbery Series 1 was getting quite a few jibes from the younger members of the team! Unfortunately no pics as again overseas but thought I'd see if anyone out here has any to share of some of the bats I donated to my old club when I moved.

This GN Powerspot posted previously was my first bat. Cracking low middle.
Then inherited a cracking Newbery from my brother ( with the JN branding that I've seen none of which came after the orange circular logo. . any out there? ).
Then had a contact at the GN factory who got me a Megadrive which was the deadest plank ever. That got replaced by a Powerspot 5 star in the mid 90s much like the David Gower Supreme but with the blue stickers.

I am trying to get in touch with old timers to track down some of the original Newbery's, especially a Merlin.

I have hopes somebody might be able to do a repair job on the Purist.

This must be rare, NOS,

Rare, collectible 1970's GN100 5-Star Scoop, brand new, as pictured.

A pristine example of the top of the range 5-Star version of this classic bat. Would suit a collector.

The bat remains in its virgin unoiled brand new state. Includes original GN bat cover as pictured. The original handle rubber is still on it (which surprisingly is not even perished given the bat is approaching 40 years old) and I put a new rubber over the top of that one to protect it.

That classic scoop looks awesome. Toe shape is pretty funky!
