    1961 New York Yankees Louisville Slugger World Series Black Bat from The Ralph Houk Collection. The 1961 New York Yankees bashed their way into the hearts of the baseball world as Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris battled for Babe Ruth's single-season home run record. But baseball is a team game, and when the curtain came down on the season, it was the Yankees who were left standing. This 1961 World Series champions black bat pays tribute to the squad - NM with the slightest age wear. The names are either in plain block letter or facsimile signatures. Letter of provenance from Ralph Houk's daughter (copy of original).
