    1948 Cleveland Indians World Championship Black Bat. It's the finest example we've encountered of this rare presentational piece from the folks at Louisville Slugger. Only players and VIP's were issued these congratulatory black bats, among them Hall of Famers Lou Boudreau, Larry Doby, Bob Feller, Joe Gordon, Bob Lemon, Bill McKechnie and the great Satchel Paige. Each appears among the facsimile signature and stamped names of the World Champs. Length is thirty-five inches. Only the slightest handling wear, otherwise NRMT.
