    Description

    1967 Willie Mays Game Used Bat, Signed by San Francisco Giants Team. For the bat collector demanding the most iron-clad provenance for his collection, we present a piece that should convince even the most skeptical hobbyist. This block letter surname Hillerich & Bradsby S2 offers everything short of a photo of Mays holding it in his hands to establish its regal heritage, as the vintage autographs of thirty-four members of Mays' Giants squad appear on its surface to definitively place it in Mays' possession. Speaking first to the specifics of the bat itself, we note that the length and weight of thirty-five inches and thirty-five ounces respectively perfectly match the ordering records for Mays during this 1965-1968 labeling period. Willie's number "24" on the knob is also clearly vintage to the era. Light but definite use is evident, with a scattering of ball and stitch marks on the barrel, as well as light green bat rack streaks and pine tar on the handle. The black marker signature that coat the vintage wood remain in uniformly 9+/10 condition, and include Mays himself, McCovey, Gaylord Perry, Alou and many more. A top-level Mays representation, graded GU7. LOA's from PSA/DNA for both game use and autographs of bat. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
