Description:
1947-49 Johnny Mize Game Used Bat, MEARS Authentic. Absolutely pummeled signature model Hillerich & Bradsby H117 serves as a living testament to the power of The Big Cat, who led the National League with fifty-one homers in 1947 and forty in 1948. The thirty-six inches of length and thirty-three ounces of weight perfectly match Mize's ordering records for this model, as do the regular knob and round barrel. Heavy checking should be evident in our images, particularly on the stamped part of the barrel. Eight inch handle crack and chipping/cracking of the knob likewise testify to a rough life in the hands of this Big Apple legend. LOA from MEARS, Authentic.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
