    Description

    1971 Willie Mays All-Star Game Used Bat. Midsummer Classic vintage and a perfect GU 10 rating from the experts at PSA/DNA set the presented example near the top of the heap for Mays lumber. Utilized by the lead-off hitter for the National League at the Briggs Stadium event, this Hillerich & Bradsby hits every note perfectly to create a dream piece for the avid bat collector. Length of thirty-four and three-quarter inches and weight of thirty-two ounces are exact for Mays' ordering records, identical to those shipped to Mays with the "All Star Game, Willie Mays, Detroit-1971" stamping found here at the barrel end. Excellent use is evident, suggesting a life beyond the Motor City, with ball marks and stitch impressions appearing on the left and back barrel, correct for a right-handed hitter like the Say Hey Kid. Green and blue bat rack streaks are evident, as is a light coating of pine tar on the uncracked handle. Mays' number "24" appears in vintage marker on the knob. A flawless 10/10 black sharpie signature on the barrel completes an unimprovable package. LOA from PSA/DNA.
