Description1954-59 Stan Musial Game Used & Signed Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8. Historic lumber dates to the second half of The Man's Hall of Fame career, the six-season production range containing the last (1957) of his seven National League batting titles. Game use is characterized as "outstanding" by the experts at PSA/DNA, who reference ball marks, stitch impressions and cleat marks as evidence of its lengthy term of service to the Hall of Fame slugger. A scattering of small pock marks on rear barrel and handle is believed to be random rather than scoring, but this issue is not apparent when displaying the side with the branding and autograph.
Length of thirty-four and a half inches (34.5") and weight of thirty-two ounces are correct for the "Musial Model" Hillerich & Bradsby M159. Silver sticker on barrel derives from a Musial autograph signing for Steiner Sports. A fine specimen from one of the deadliest arsenals of our national pastime. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.
Guide Value or Estimate: $10,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
