    1959 Willie McCovey Game Used & Signed Bat, PSA/DNA GU 8.5. Willie McCovey began his career with a bang as he won the National League Rookie of the Year in 1959. This was despite him playing in only 52 games. Stretch won the NL Player of the Month during his first full month in the big leagues. We searched the auction archives and could find only one other bat attributed to his historic rookie campaign.

    This Hillerich & Bradsby model K55 lumber (30 ounces and 34.5") saw action when McCovey was barely able to buy a drink. A slight handle crack has been professionally repaired. Several ball marks are located on the right and back barrel. Green bat rack streaks and cleat marks are also visible. McCovey signed the barrel in black felt tip and added "1959 S.F. Giants 354 BA. 13 HRs." Two PSA/DNA stickers are on the barrel end. "K55" is punched into the knob. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 8.5. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
