Is your question money-motivated or collector motivated (in an effort to preserve its history?)

I personally would leave it as-is. But if you were to separate the Bat from the Base (and professionally fill the nail holes) you might realize more money. I know you are primarily a seller, so you may want to reach out to Bill Rayburn to ask what such restoration might cost. I am sure Bill could make the repair virtually invisible. The extent to which the repair cost offsets the potential increase in price is anyone's guess.

I personally would remove the base. Also a child's model which will hurt the price.

If you can remove the base with no issues, then yes take it off! Still a nice bat with the rings and logo - if the bat is youth make sure you state the length if selling

Good Luck!

I actually like the way it looks with the base. If it was mine I would leave it bc that’s the way I found it.

I just looked at a 28" one for $650.00 and I though that was a wish
