    Description

    1953-58 Yogi Berra Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 10. Five American League pennants and three World Series Championships occupy the six-season production span of the provided Hillerich & Bradsby signature model R43, providing near certainty that pinstriped glory is found within the bat's DNA. Its owner earned great personal acclaim during the period as well, the 1954 and 1955 seasons marking Berra's second and third career American League MVP Awards. So it's hardly hyperbolic to claim that this lumber represents an era of nearly unparalleled excellence for both the man who swung it, and the team he so faithfully represented.

    Leading bat expert John Taube heaps praise upon this elite specimen, celebrating outstanding game use in the form of ball marks, two colors of rack streaks, and a rare, vintage number "8" in marker on the knob along with the original weight in ounces (32). Length of thirty-five inches (35") and current weight of just over thirty-one ounces (31.3 oz.) are faithful to factory ordering records. Remarkably, despite a battle-scarred barrel, complete with a barely visible vintage autograph, the handle remains uncracked. One of the best Berra bats on Earth. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 10.
