Marucci G27 Maple

Louisville Slugger H281 Maple (Cupped)

Stanton backspins balls into orbit with a mix of Marucci and Louisville Slugger lumber.  From Marucci, he swings the G27, a model that is likely derived from his previous Marucci cut, the RH6 (Ryan Howard).  Consequently, Stanton’s Louisville Slugger H281 is also a model favored by fellow NL East behemoth, Ryan Howard, the H281.  These models are likely the same, and the distinguishing feature is the flared knob, seen below on one of Giancarlo’s Marucci RH6 bats.


Our bat historian, Rocky, has discussed the flared knob before, and though it is rarely used, its been swung by some of the game’s greatest ever.   The RH6 is available.

Batting Gloves

Nike Diamond Elite Pro II

Seen in the photo above, these are available.


Nike Air Huarache Pro Mid in Various Colorways

Stanton has a few different versions made up, and you can build ‘em on NIKEiD.


Rawlings Pro Preferred PROS27HFB 13″

  • Camel palm
  • #6 web
  • Black lace
  • ‘Giancarlo’ in royal script

Giancarlo went nuts with his custom Rawlings, adding the following customizations on his order form:

“Make ½ pinky orange, the ½ pinky, ring finger, middle finger, index finger and ½ thumb black.  Bottom ½ thumb in orange. Put orange gel pad over index.  On the H-web make the middle (horizontal) bar in orange and the 2 (vertical) posts in black.”

After that mess, do I even need to tell ya this one isn’t available?  However, we’ve seen the same model (not colors) available on the various glove forums if you keep an eye out.


Oakley Radar Range Straight Stem in White/Black

Giancarlo Stanton’s sunglasses can be seen in the glove shot above and are available on Oakley’s custom tool with the following specs:

  • Frame: Pearl White (Straight Stem)
  • Lens: Fire Iridium Range
  • Icon: Polished Black
  • Earsock: Black


Evoshield Elbow Guard

      I thought the same thing too since Phiten is one of the “official companies” for MLB. Esdras Delis and another person named Michael both said it’s a CSS (Custom Sports Sleeves) sleeve, with Michael saying it’s confirmed that he uses it; I haven’t found a link supporting that claim as of yet. The Vols Orange color looks like it’s the exact same color as the one Stanton wears, so I ordered one just for the hell of it.

    Got the CSS sleeve yesterday in Vols Orange, and I can say with almost 100% certainty that Stanton wears a customized CSS sleeve. The “CSS Font” on my sleeve is the exact same as the Stanton’s number (27) is on his sleeve.

    They also work amazingly well; I had Tommy John surgery after busting my elbow pitching for University of Miami, and this thing takes away any and all pain.

    Looking as badass as Stanton does with the sleeve is one thing, but having no pain is way worth it.

    I think I saw the Under Armour logo on the sleeve during a game last week.

      You more than likely saw the CSS Font that read “27” somewhat spaced apart. That’s the sleeve he’s been using since the whole “orange compression sleeve” mystery began.

    His arm sleeve is from CSS

  12. Giancarlo’s newest sleeve was the American Flag Sleeve by CSS he also definitely wears the custom number/initial sleeve from CSS and I have confirmed it. CSS is creating some nice custom sleeves for Mr. Stanton for 2015. Be on the lookout!
