    1977-79 Mickey Mantle Coaching/Old Timers Game Used Bat, Signed. They say that power is the last thing to go, so we bet that the Mick could still put a nice wallop on a ball when he strode to the plate with this signature model Hillerich & Bradsby K55 at some point in his late forties. We aren't certain if this bat was used for coaching duties, or at an Old Timers event, but the number "7" in marker on the knob and the evident use--ball marks, stitch impressions, rack streaks and pine tar on the cracked handle--prove that this was no mere showpiece. Length is thirty-five inches, weight just short of thirty-one ounces. The bat derives from the personal collection of the Mick's close friend Tom Catal, proprietor of The Mickey Mantle Museum in Cooperstown. A black sharpie signature on the barrel rates 9/10, its preservation aided in part by a clear coat over the autograph. LOA from PSA/DNA (bat). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
