    Description

    1925-28 Harry Heilmann Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 7.5. Take away Teddy Ballgame's historic 1941 campaign and this would be the last man to bat .400, a feat Heilmann accomplished as he claimed the second of four American League batting titles with a .403 tally in 1923. Though the star outfielder for the Detroit Tigers ranks twelfth on the Major League career charts with a .342 lifetime average, Heilmann inexplicably earned his Hall of Fame plaque posthumously, a full twenty years after his last at-bat. Former teammate Ty Cobb was instrumental in the enshrinement efforts.

    Heilmann claimed the American League batting title twice during the four-season span of this Hillerich & Bradsby signature model bat's production, finishing in the top five of MVP voting in all but one. Bat shows heavy game use that ended with a handle crack that shed a small sliver. Small chip on knob. Barrel shows the signs of countless impacts with balls and cleats, with checking tacked down by vintage nails. Length is thirty-six inches (36"), weight thirty-four ounces (33.9 oz.). This is the first Heilmann gamer we've ever offered, which should provide a hint at the rarity. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 7.5.
