    Description

    1962-63 Willie McCovey Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9.5.
    He was nearly the hero of the 1962 World Series, but his scorching line drive that would likely have plated the tying and winning runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game Seven was snared by Bobby Richardson to preserve the one-to-nothing Yankee victory and cement their twentieth World Championship. Presented is a Hillerich & Bradsby K44 exhibiting massive game use from that unforgettable era.

    Ball marks and stitch impressions coat a barrel speckled with cleat marks and streaked with green bat rack paint. Light pine tar appears on the cracked on professionally repaired handle. McCovey's number "44" is written in black marker on the knob along with the bat's weight in ounces (33 1/2) in pencil. Length is thirty-five and a half inches (34.5"). An absolutely "pounded" monster from the 500 Home Run Club and Hall of Fame member. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9.5.
