    Description

    1923-25 Rogers Hornsby Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8. It's the rarest of all Hornsby gamers, a format that long baffled collectors until a photograph surfaced of the confident looking slugger posing in the Cardinals dugout with this precise style at the ready. Still lost beneath the sands of baseball history is the reason for the Louisville bat factory's brief flirtation with monogrammed lumber, but other players' models have surfaced with limited regularity over the years, all confined to the first half of the 1920's. Expert John Taube has assigned a three-year range of production for this special relic, a period populated by three National League batting titles (twice exceeding the fabled .400 mark), an MVP Award and a Triple Crown.

    The format is the desirable Hillerich & Bradsby H117 model, with the unique knob style that came to bear the Hall of Fame slugger's name and the thirty-five inch (35") length and thirty-six ounce (36 oz.) weight that match his factory ordering records. Ball marks and cleat divots coat the barrel, and blue and green rack streaks likewise assure multiple games of use. The experts at PSA/DNA characterize game use as "excellent." A special relic from the seven-time National League batting champion. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.
