    1947-48 Paul Waner Post-Career Used Bat, PSA/DNA Authentic. A review of Waner's professional bat ordering record (PBOR) finds that two orders of his signature model Hillerich & Bradsby W45 were made in the years following his retirement, one on July 25, 1947 and the other on May 21, 1948. Presented is one of those bats, exhibiting heavy use that may relate to coaching, exhibition or Old Timers Day use. Ball marks and stitch impressions abound, and the grain of the barrel is swollen from the punishment and repaired with vintage nails. Green bat rack streaks appear as well. Length is thirty-five inches, weight thirty-three ounces. LOA from PSA/DNA, Authentic.
