Description

1955 Hall of Famers Multi-Signed Bat with Ott, Cobb, Lajoie, More. A small handwritten notation near the trademark of this absolutely massive (42" long!) Hillerich & Bradsby reads "1955 Cooperstown Induction," and the roster of signers would appear to validate this date. The oversized barrel is adorned with a constellation of star autographs, though we must stipulate that the fountain pen ink used for their application has not weathered the passing decades as well as one might hope. The following autographs remain quite readily legible: Ott, Cobb, Lajoie, Wheat (8/10), Walsh, Traynor, Terry, Schalk, Greenberg, Dickey, Conlan, Vance, Speaker, Baker, McCarthy, Crawford, Sisler (7/10), Gehringer (5/10), Frisch. Unless otherwise noted, the autographs will fall into the 2/10 to 4/10 range. The original owner of the bat has rounded out the full roster of Hall of Fame residents with hand printed names at the center of the bat, most of whom were already deceased at the time of the signing. In flawless condition the sky would be the limit for the price tag on this special relic, but there is still enormous appeal here as an object touched by a stunning array of diamond legends. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
