    Description

    1969-71 Ernie Banks Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 6. One of the greatest players ever to call Wrigley Field home, Ernie Banks comes by his Mr. Cub nickname honestly, dedicating all nineteen of his Hall of Fame seasons to the franchise. Here we encounter a late-career signature model Hillerich & Bradsby S2, exactly the type used to put the finishing touches on his eye-popping stats and launch the last of his 512 long balls. Use is light but definite, with attribution made all the more certain by the appearance of "Yosh marks," the handwritten bat specs written on the knob by long time Cubs clubhouse manager Yosh Kawano. His distinctive handwriting announces Banks' jersey number (14) and bat weight in ounces (31) on the knob. Bat length is thirty-five inches. Light but definite use. Black sharpie signature on barrel is 10/10, and is enhanced by notations reading "My Game Bat" and "Mr. Cub." LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 6. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).
