    Description

    1977-79 Willie McCovey Game Used Bat, PSA/DNA GU 9.5. Late career lumber saw action during an exciting time in the San Francisco Giants Hall of Famer's playing days, as he approached and successfully summited the 500 Home Run plateau. The Hillerich & Bradsby M110L shows excellent use with ball marks, stitch impressions and two tones of bat rack streaks, a war club that quite possibly launched one or more of McCovey's final long balls. Light pine tar coats the slightly cracked handle, and number "44" appears in vintage black marker on the knob. Length is thirty-five inches (35"), weight thirty-three ounces (33 oz.). LOA from PSA/DNA, GU 9.5.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
