Description

Detailed description on website.

Issued to professional teams during the 1960s, these (4) pro stock bats include:

 

Hank Aaron 1965-1968 Pro Stock Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (36.7-oz/35”) “R43” white ash signature model showing heavy use with ball, stitch and surface marks throughout. The fact that Aaron did not order any “R43” 35” models after the 1957 season suggests that this was a team-ordered bat likely used by another player.

 

Willie Mays 1961-1967 Pro Stock Catalog Model Bat: an Adirondack (35.4-oz/35”) “282C” white ash signature model showing moderate use with ball, cleat and stitch impressions about the barrel, as well as a handle crack whose length is obscured by a 5” layer of athletic tape. Note: while Mays did use “282A” models during his career, the “282C” identifier was for catalog and team-issued models.

 

Frank Robinson 1965-1968 Pro Stock Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (33.8-oz/34”) “K55” white ash signature model showing heavy use with ball, bat-rack, stitch and surface marks throughout, as well as grain swelling/checking about the hitting surface and a 5-1/2” handle crack. The fact that Aaron did not order any “K55” 34” models after the 1957 season indicates that this was a team-ordered bat likely used by another player.

 

Carl Yastrzemski 1965-1968 Pro Stock Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (33.1-oz/35”) “K48” white ash signature model showing heavy use with ball, bat-rack, stitch and surface marks throughout, as well as heavy pine-tar residue and a crack of just over six inches on the handle’s upper portion. While Yastrzemski did use “K48” models early in his career and again during the 1982 season, this model was ordered by and used at a Maryland U.S. military base, as evidenced by barrel stampings reading “FT. G.G. MEADE.”
