    1959-60 Ted Williams Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 7.5. Teddy Ballgame. The Splendid Splinter. The Kid. Only the greatest figures in the game compile such a large collection of nicknames, a truth we've seen validated from Ruth to Jeter. When Ted Williams carried this signature model Hillerich & Bradsby W183 to the plate in the sunset of his remarkable career, he had already stamped his ticket to the sport's pantheon and was simply burnishing the figures that would appear on his bronze Cooperstown plaque.

    Leading bat expert John Taube assesses the game use on this special relic as "outstanding," noting ball marks, stitch impressions, rack streaks, and light pine tar on the cracked and profesionally repaired handle. Clearly some of those eye-popping tallies derive from the punished grain of this relic. Length is thirty-five inches, weight thirty-one and a half ounces. A marvelous representation of one of the most essential game used artifacts in the hobby. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 7.5.
