I'd say that Newbery was likely mid 90's.

Also, not sure if this is really Vintage, and it's definitely not British made, but here is a BDM Dynamic Force. Can anyone date it, and do you think the amazing tiger decals and carving are original or
some custom messing with the bat? This one definitely not for sale... See pics at https://photos.app.goo.gl/jN9vKXiTee3ipu36A

I have an old BDM typhoon which has similar groves in the back edges, think they copied the Slazenger V800 MK2. I think there is a picture earlier in this thread, will see if I can find it

Here you go - the BDM is top right, and the Slaz bottom right (still have both but planning to sell as focusing on GN now)

Here is my son's Harrow vintage Kippax Leviathon:

These are definitely some of the best stickers and presentation. I thought it was a devil picture but I now see that these are dragons. I particularly like the old style lettering. It's a shame so few of the bats nowadays have this kind of artwork.

The grains are really nice and it still pings well, although on close inspection I think it might be starting to delaminate. I may do some repair work before next season...

Now if we are talking really vintage kit, take a look at

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Primitive-Wooden-Cricket-Bat-Sports-Bar-Pub-Man-Cave-Decorative/292920377307

Could it be genuine? Or maybe just a modern mock-up

No splice so either very old, or homemade, I would suggest the latter. My mate has something very similar in his garage, he made it out of a spare piece of oak he had lying around when his kids were young (20yrs ago)

I think the bat labelled as a Kippax is actually a HCB Reflex, it has the same distinctive shape as the Reflex

The SP is nice as well, pity it's missing some labels

marketed by David Gower late in his career - wonder where they were made/who made the bats for them as was probably too early for the small company bulk buying from RNS/SG etc?

i loved the gloves he wore!!!
