    On E---y: Ti $500-750. OG Freak $200-300. OG Ultra $500-1000. OG Velocit-E $250-500. Depending on weight, NIW, and condition if used. On this site much less for the most part because most members aren't willing to spend that kind of money on bats that are basically collectables or can't be used in most if not all sanctioned leagues. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    The Ti looks really clean. Sold a beat up one maybe 3 or 4 years ago for 300. Would say double that would be ebay price where it would actually sell quickly. Ultra has some variables that will swing price, as will Freak, based on batch, but lack of sanction means lack of popular demand. Sold two Velocite bats many years ago for 175 plus, but that was when they were still ASA legal. Today, not for anyone but collectors. Do you have a time machine or more details on ultra and freak

    I know the Titanuim Bat is illegal and banned in most places. Also it was before the BPF ratings.

    I was just wondering if
    anybody knows what the BPF rating number is or would be for the Titanium Bats?

    What would you guess?

    Yeah, I'm aware prices here are going to be around half of what Ebay might bring.
    I ask here to find out what the bottom of the market is.lol

    Hey Ron,thank you. Hope all is well with you.
    There's been a few changes since we last spoke, I'm about 1200 miles east from where we last took BP.
    And no, that last HR you hit against me still hasn't landed.:D

    There was a posted paper that showed Ti exit speeds, maybe someone has the link still

    From hitting them, they were awesome but I got the same distance with my Ultra that I got with the Ti when using good balls. The Ti really shines with red dots or derby balls

    I just sold my original Miken Ultra with 50 cuts on it for $275 and the kid promptly broke it in about 200 swings hitting stadium balls in some hr hitting contests down south - He said they where the best 200 swings that he's ever had though - agreed with the collectors status on these bats... Someone will want them to sit in their manacle no doubt - good luck with the sale.

    So the story behind these bats is.
    We were taking BP yesterday and this elderly gentleman (80+) walks up and has these 4 bats in hand and a box full of older aluminum bats.
    He says he hasn't played in several years and was meeting someone to sell the bats to. That person no showed so he saw us and we started talking.

    I told him I would post here and let him know what your feedback was.

    I agree with Smoke and Joker that the Ultra and Freak have red flags.

    To me it looks like they may have had work done to them.

    The Ti is pristine and velo looks legit.
    The other aluminums were a mix of EST's an OG Demar,I saw an Anderson in there too.

    I didn't take any pics of the metal bats.
    If anyone wants the pics sent to them PM your #and I'll send them.

    Thanks for your help guys.

    you won't get more than $100 for the velocit-e and more likely less than $75 since it's a 30oz

    I have to agree with some comments on the miken bats...the endcaps are NOT the "correct/original" type, more of like man-made poured endcaps...

    I'm posting purely for the comedy of it. lol

    $1,000.00 and they're all yours.:D

    The 2 endcaps aren’t the only thing that looks funky, looks like some type of seam on the bats near the endcaps

    I don't understand why people think the Titaniums are worth so much. The bats of today will out hit a titanium bat easily. They are cool to have but that's about it.
