    1970-72 Thurman Munson Bat Game Used by Roy White. Exceptional rookie era war club from the personal stock of the great Thurman Munson may well have been used by the tragic catcher at some point before it was commandeered by teammate Roy White, whose number "6" appears at each end in vintage marker. We cannot state this definitively however, but this much is for certain--the signature model Hillerich & Bradsby U1 matches all factory characteristics for Munson's earliest professional lumber, at thirty-three ounces and thirty-six inches of length. The authenticators have termed the use as "significant," with barrel swelling from the punishment of ball strikes, which have left deeply embedded stitch marks and a six-inch handle crack. Grip tape has been removed, but the shadow of the pattern remains visible. MEARS A5.5.
