Default Help with buying a used bat

Im looking to buy a used softball bat off kijiji, and I am meeting the seller this Sunday.

Any tips on how I can inspect the bat to determine its condition, any durability issues, or if its a dead bat? The seller said there is roughly 100 cuts on it.

Is that a website or a person? Did you get pics and if you can post that would help.
Look for cracks, shake it to see if there are any loose material inside. A little sand is not too bad on some mfrs, bad on others. Without knowing what bat it is, hard to say if it is a 'dead bat' or log if that is what you mean. If truly 100 swings (probably higher ) you just want to make sure it does not have issues where it will break prematurely.
