Does anyone know where I can find out the value of a George Foster 1978 black bat? It was a Riverfront Stadium giveaway celebrating Foster's monster 1977 MVP season. The bat is black and in new condition.

The official George Foster Little League bats from the era go for anything from $10-$30, depending on their condition. Meanwhile, game-used George Foster bats go for $100-$250, depending again on their condition and whether George autographed them or not.

I don't know the precise value of a pristine stadium giveaway bat like you have, but my hunch is it's between the $30 tops paid for the Little League bats and the $100 starting point for one of Foster's genuine, game-used relics. In the final analysis, exactly how much it's worth depends only on what someone's willing to pay you for it.
