The single season labeling style of this signature model Hillerich & Bradsby H4 allows definitive attribution to the gaudy stats of that 1950 campaign, the pale ash weapon exhibiting use characterized as "moderate" by the hobby's top bat expert. PSA/DNA's John Taube directs our attention to ball marks and stitch impressions on the back barrel of the hefty thirty-six ounce gamer. Length is thirty-five inches.
A signed and notarized letter from the original recipient of the bat from Robinson, still a resident of Brooklyn, identifies the date of his exciting meeting with the future Hall of Famer as May 21, 1950, a tough ten to nine loss to the Reds at Ebbets Field. Robinson recorded a hit in the contest to end the game at an impressive .333 average. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8. Letter of provenance from original recipient.
