    1967-68 Ernie Banks Game Used Bat. Talk about being at the right spot at the right time. When our consignor was a youngster he attended a Cubs and Reds doubleheader August 18, 1968 for a little afternoon baseball. Following the second game, he asked a staffer if they had any cracked bats. They reached over and handed him the bat of Ernie Banks - Hillerich and Bradsby model S2 (36" and 33.9 ounces.) Not a bad gift indeed. It has remained in our consignor's collection ever since. Ball and hit marks pepper all areas of the barrel and there is evidence of checking. "14 36" is written on the knob in black marker. According to John Taube's research this was written over another number. A 7.5" crack appears on the handle which signaled the end of the line. Banks signed the bat in 6/10 felt tip ink. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 6. LOA from Consignor. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
