    1950-55 Rogers Hornsby Coach's Bat. The St. Louis Browns players threw a big party when Bill Veeck finally gave this legendary slugger the boot, and Tom Hanks famously referenced Hornsby's cruel managerial style in his "There's no crying in baseball" rant in the film "A League of Their Own." Expert John Taube confirms this is indeed a Hornsby model, but the thirty-three and a half inch length does not conform, as Rogers ordered only thirty-five and thirty-six inch lengths. Weight thirty-three and a half ounces. Signature model Hillerich & Bradsby H116. LOA from PSA/DNA stating use by Hornsby cannot be confirmed.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
