    1957 Billy Martin Game Bat Used by Another Player, PSA/DNA Authentic. A brawl at Manhattan's famed Copacabana night club proved to be the last straw for the Yankee brass, who sent Martin to the Kansas City Athletics soon after the scandal hit the papers. This signature model Hillerich & Bradsby K55 was delivered to the scrappy second baseman that controversial season, but a number "32" on the knob suggests it was used either by Yankees teammate Elston Howard or Bob Martyn or Jim Pisoni who wore the number that year in Kansas City. Game use is heavy and handle is cracked and repaired. Length is thirty-four and a half inches (34.5"), weight thirty-two ounces (32 oz.). LOA from PSA/DNA, Authentic.
