Description:
1959 Duke Snider Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 10. The last great season in a career with no shortage thereof, 1959 saw the fabled center fielder drive in eighty-eight runs en route to establishing the Dodgers as the first west coast World Champions. Here we present a hulking slab of lumber from that important campaign, a Hillerich & Bradsby C117L showing outstanding use from the man whose number "4" will never again see the back of a Dodgers jersey. Ball marks and stitch impressions abound on the standard ash finish, with scattered cleat marks and Snider's original handle tape still in place. Number "4" appears in marker on knob and handle end. Length is thirty-five inches, weight thirty-three and a half ounces. The bat was sourced from the family of Frank Milano, and four Dodgers photos (including Snider) signed to "Frankie" are included in the lot (secretarially signed). With tremendous use, key player attributes (handle tape style, cleat marks) and solid provenance, the bat earns expert John Taube's highest rating. One of the finest Duke Snider relics ever made available to the collecting community. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 10.
