Description:
1954 Whitey Ford All-Star Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8. There are few bats lonelier than the pitcher's All-Star model, but the Hall of Fame lefty did get one at-bat at the Cleveland Municipal Stadium contest, and was fanned by fellow Hall of Famer Robin Roberts in the bottom of the second. So we can forgive the minimal use apparent on this hefty Hillerich & Bradsby P19, a treasure in any state for its dual collecting appeal of iconic heritage and Midsummer Classic vintage. The natural ash beauty stretches the tape measure to thirty-five inches, and tips the scales at thirty-eight ounces, the bat weight recalling another Yankee southpaw named Ruth. Rack streaks on the barrel and handle. One of just a tiny handful of Ford gamers to reach the public auction block in recent memory. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.
