The bat exhibits excellent use, most likely inflicted during Reese's time in Kentucky, as he would not make his official Dodgers debut until April 23, 1940. Slight checking, ball and stitch marks, cleat divots, and red and blue rack streaks decorate the barrel. Vintage nails tack down a handle crack. Early "Hal Reese" facsimile signature appears at barrel of the thirty-four and a half inch lumber, which tips the scales at thirty-two ounces. Perfect black sharpie signature on the barrel is rare "Hal Pee Wee Reese" variation. To the best of our understanding, this is the single earliest Pee Wee Reese bat ever to surface in the collecting hobby, and as such one of the most desirable of all Dodgers models to reach the auction block in recent memory. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).
