    1969-72 Willie Mays Game Bat with Period Autograph. A visit to the Giants dugout by a young fan spared this Hillerich & Bradsby S2 from the pain and suffering of action in the hands of the number four man on the career home run chart, but a few bat rack streaks assure that it made a very narrow escape indeed. But the blonde ash barrel remains free of ball marks, instead bearing a black marker inscription that reads, "To David, Best Wishes, Willie Mays." The inscription is lightly smeared in spots, but still presents very well. Length thirty-five inches, weight thirty-three and a half ounces. LOA from PSA/DNA. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
