A couple of bats

Postby okdoak » September 15th, 2009, 2:57 pm

I'm a lot more interested in gloves than bats, but I used to find nice bats at my local PAS and antique malls. I'd be interested to know if our bat collectors find many black Louisville Sluggers, since I don't really look for them. Had to put my favorite glove from the era in the picture, a Rocky Colavito PM. :)

The Gus bell looks like it could be a game ready...any stamping on the knob?

Just the number 34 (for the length, I guess) is stamped on the knob.

In the 40's, 50's, and 60's H&B used to paint their bats black and brown for store models when they used wood that just wasn't up to par. The paint covered up alot of blemishes
