    1938 New York Yankees Team Signed Jake Powell Game Used Bat. Speedy back-up outfielder Jake Powell surrendered one of his Hanna Batrite gamers for a greater cause during the great Lou Gehrig's final complete season, passing it to the Iron Horse and eighteen other World Champion Yanks along with a black fountain pen. Admittedly ash and ink don't mix particularly well, with PSA/DNA grading the signatures at 4/10, but we can spot Gehrig, Dickey, Gomez, Ruffing, Gordon, Chandler, Selkirk and Sundra quite easily. A lengthy handle crack ended the service of this thirty-five ounce gamer, but the bat remains solid and well suited for display. Prewar team signed bats are practically nonexistent, so collectors of that theme will surely be paying close attention to this one. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Full grading LOA from PSA/DNA.
