Look at the initials below the Zenith logo

After John Newbery's first bat company went bust (the Merlin in the above pic was from his first company) one of his staff, the marketing manager IIRC, founded Zenith bats, with John Newbery as an employee. Zenith didn't last long and John Newbery died in 1989. I think one or two pros used Zeniths including John Carr of Middlesex and Chris Cowdrey possibly when he was briefly England Captain

I used to have a zenith bat. As well as the Newbury initials the 'Z' was at a funny angle because when you were in your stance with the bat picked up it looked like an 'N' for Newbury.

What brand is the bat with 2 red bands round the top of the blade, the bat is above the red bin?

That is one of my own bats, the first one I ever made.

Look what I found!!! -





It's actually not that bad, it still taps up ok, and no cracks or splits.

And what's that I see in the profile - is it a duckbill toe!!!

I've got a veterans game today, and I'm going to try to use it.

@FattusCattus that's exactly the bat I had at uni in the 80s! Mind you it was never quite the same after I smashed the toe on a metal stump in the nets one of the first times I used it :-[

Fattus - I had a mint GN500 Powerline I sold probably around 5 or 6 years ago. Had a nice middle but the middle was very small. Duckbill toe, dead as a doorknob down there, would send shudders up your spine on impact ! The old 500's still look cool though ! lol

8 pages back on this topic! I haven't got round to selling many of those bats as I'm not sure how to price them. Anybody got any ideas on guide prices? All the money goes to my club.
