Description

Turned by Kentucky’s famed Hillerich & Bradsby plant to honor annual Cooperstown classes, these (30) full-size commemorative weapons are among the most coveted Hall of Fame collectibles. The limited edition items showcase a brown “Walker” finish with gold-colored facsimile signature stampings of those who wielded H&B lumber (and block-letter stampings of those who did not). This gathering includes an uninterrupted run spanning the 1936 through 1949 classes (minus 1940, 1941 and 1943 examples, as there were no inductions those years). This display arsenal is introduced and headlined by the “holy grail” of these keepsakes: a 1936 bat (67/500) honoring the inaugural class of Cobb, W. Johnson, Mathewson, Ruth and Wagner. Additional highlights include the 1939 bat with Gehrig; 1955 bat with DiMaggio and the 1966 keepsake with T. Williams. Note: due to the size/weight of this lot, a shipping surcharge will apply.
