    Description

    1926 Lou Gehrig Hillerich & Bradsby Sidewritten Lathe Bat, PSA/DNA Authentic. Just a season before Lou Gehrig and Murderers' Row assaulted the baseball world, the Yankees were putting their pieces in place. The team won ninety-one games but fell to the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. The Iron Horse got his first taste of October baseball and hit .348 in the seven game series. This Hillerich & Bradsby bat (35" and 37.3 ounces) served as a template for the bats he ordered 7-12-26. Gehrig's name and the date "7-12-26" are barely visible on the barrel end. According to John Taube's letter of authenticity. "This pattern bat was used by Louisville Slugger as a template for a model ordered by Gehrig on July 12, 1926. Referring to Gehrig's professional bat ordering records, of which we have copies, we see that on 7-12-26 Gehrig orders bats with the model notation "His #2, McCuroy Kamm 6-10-25,37-38 oz." LOA from PSA/DNA, Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
