Five years removed from his Rookie of the Year debut season, and two from the glorious World Championship season of 1954, Mays was at the height of his brilliance when he instilled the thirty-five inches of blonde ash presented here with use characterized as "outstanding" by top bat expert John Taube. Ball marks and stitch impressions are evident, as are several green stripes from the bat rack. The signature model Hillerich & Bradsby W173 remains uncracked, and tips the scales at just under thirty-five ounces.
The black sharpie signature on the barrel has been graded PSA/DNA Mint 9. LOA (for bat) from PSA/DNA, GU 9. LOA (for autograph) from PSA/DNA, Mint 9. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
