    Description

    1923-25 George Sisler Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8.
    Fifty-one stolen bases and an unearthly .420 batting average made Gorgeous George a landslide winner of the 1922 American League MVP Award, and his durability and lifetime .340 batting average made him a Hall of Famer.

    The provided signature model Hillerich & Bradsby finds the legend in a remarkable period of recovery, as he'd miss the entire 1923 season with a severe attack of sinusitis that gave him double vision. He described the long road back to the Majors to journalists: "I planned to get back in uniform for 1924. I just had to meet a ball with a good swing again, and then run. The doctors all said I'd never play again, but when you're fighting for something that actually keeps you alive - well, the human will is all you need."

    Sisler recorded a .305 average in 1924 and .345 during the final possible season of this bat's active duty which accounts for the ball marks visible on the right and back barrel. Uncracked and measuring 35.75" in length and weighing of 36.9 ounces, the bat maintains perfect fidelity to Sisler bat schematics for this period.

    Here is an exciting opportunity to own essential lumber rarely seen on the hobby's auction block. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.
