Description

Issued in limited edition quantities, these (67) Hillerich & Bradsby or Louisville Slugger Hall of Fame (34”) bats feature gold-colored stampings listing annual inductees. Emerging prominently against a rich brown patina, the names include facsimile signatures of those who were under contract with H&B and block-letter stampings of those who wielded “other” weapons. This impressive collection is comprised of well-preserved white ash prizes and is ideal for display. This near-complete run is missing only 1995, and we note that no bats were issued during the following years: 1940, 1941, 1943, 1944 & 1945 (issued in 1946), 1950, 1958 & 1960. This comprehensive assortment is ideal for autographs of living Cooperstown enshrinees and holds inherent value on the keepsakes’ limited edition status, alone. Note: due to the size/weight of this lot, a shipping surcharge will apply. More on our website.
