    Description

    1968 All-Star Game Bat from The Brooks Robinson Collection. The 1968 Midsummer Classic was an Astrodome pitcher's duel that saw just eight total hits and a single run that gave the National League the victory. The presented signature model Hillerich & Bradsby K55 was primed for use in the contest, with a number "5" appearing in vintage marker on the knob, but the bat never met horsehide. A strip of tape has been removed from the barrel, leaving a small patch of adhesive behind, but otherwise the relic is entirely unblemished.

    As is the case with most of the All-Star bats retained by Robinson, this example exhibits no signs of game use, suggesting that the legendary third baseman was properly fond of the unique format and chose to employ it as a souvenir rather than an offensive tool. The pristine specimen measures thirty-five inches (35") in length and weighs thirty-one ounces (31 oz.). LOA from PSA/DNA, Authentic. Letter of provenance from Brooks Robinson.

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
