    Description

    1969-71 Ernie Banks Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 7.5. 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. All angles of the barrel show signs of use from the Chicago favorite. Ball marks and stitch impressions are visible throughout. Cleat marks and green bat rack streaks only add to this legendary lumber. A 13.5" crack runs from the handle to the trademark. "S2" is punched into the knob. John Taube's research indicates the bat could have also seen additional use by Banks after his career ended. Overall, a perfect reminder of the Cubs player who always had that infectious smile, even when the team was struggling. LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 7.5.
