    Description

    1958 Hank Aaron World Series Game Issued Bat, PSA/DNA Authentic.
    The world record for a Hank Aaron bat was smashed just months ago as Heritage commanded a winning bid of $132,000 for a spectacular rookie model gamer, a solid data point for the argument that this long ball legend is finally getting the respect he deserves. The enormous press coverage received for that monumental result brought this thrilling rarity out of the woodwork, the only known Aaron World Series bat in private hands.

    While this signature model Hillerich & Bradsby S2 never got to experience the power of Hammerin' Hank's swing, blue and red rack streaks on the barrel and handle inform us that the lumber was at the ready that October before it began its life as a collectible. Length of thirty-five and a half inches (35.5") and weight of thirty-one and a half ounces (31.5 oz.).

    Other than the All-Star Game, the World Series of 1957 and 1958 represented the only crossing of the paths of home run heroes Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle, each man sharing equally in the World Championship glory those contests afforded. Likewise the season that Major League Baseball debuted in California, 1958 was one of enormous significance within the history of the professional game. LOA from PSA/DNA, Authentic.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
