    1950 Luke Appling Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 10 - Highest Graded. They called him "Old Aches and Pains" due to his constant complaints about minor injuries, but he endured for a full two decades in the Majors nonetheless, earning Hall of Fame immortality in the process. The presented Hillerich & Bradsby S2 likely accounted for several of the last thirty hits of his career, recorded as a forty-three year old utility infielder for the Chicago White Sox team that was his sole Major League association. Expert John Taube assesses game use as "outstanding," noting ball marks, stitch impressions, rack streaks, pine tar and slight checking of the grain. Uncracked. Length thirty-five inches (35"), weight thirty-one ounces (31 oz.). Bat entered the collectibles hobby through Appling's grandson Ben Sumpter, that family provenance the final component to result in a perfect rating. This is the only known Appling PSA/DNA GU 10 bat to reach the auction block. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 10.
