    1976 Larry Bowa Signed Game Issued Bat from The Gary Carter Collection. The All-Star shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies proved prescient with his blue sharpie inscription on the barrel of this game-ready beauty, writing, "Gary, To a future Hall of Famer, Best of Luck, Larry Bowa." The signature model Hillerich & Bradsby U1 features the desirable single-season Liberty Bell stamping, an attribute made all the more attractive due to Bowa's strong affiliation with the city where the relic resides. Length thirty-four inches (34"), weight thirty-two ounces (32 oz.). No game use evident. Letter of provenance from Sandy Carter. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
