Description



Appropriately paying homage to Babe Ruth, Hillerich & Bradsby has turned many white ash weapons bearing the fence-clearing icon’s name. These (2) H&B keepsakes are of that ilk. Includes:

Babe Ruth Commemorative Brown Bat a 35” weapon with a gorgeous deep-brown surface and brilliant gold-colored stampings. Between the center brand and Ruth’s facsimile signature, a stamped legend reads: “Career – 1914 to 1935 – Lifetime B.A. - .342 – Home Runs – 714.” The flawless keepsake shows (Mint) quality.

Vintage Store Model a circa-1950s store model “Leader” Babe Ruth (34”) block-letter model autographed below the barrel stampings by Ruth’s stepdaughter, Julia Ruth Stevens (black marker, “9” strength). This bat shows heavy use with chipping about the hitting surface and knob.
