Mini Bats

1. Johnny Logan, Hillerich & Bradsby 125. A very nice 1950's bat. 18" Ex/Mt $25

2. Reggie Jackson, Hillerich & Bradsby 125. A very nice 1970's bat.16" Ex/Mt $20

3. Whitey Lockman, Hillerich & Bradsby 125. A very nice 1940's-50's bat with a couple of very small nicks on the barrel. 16" Ex/Mt $25

4. Bob Thomson, Adirondack 302. This bat was sawn in half with a flat back side and appears to have been affixed to a pennant or sign. Has beautifully etched in labeling. Nicely sawn. Near Mint condition. 8 1/2" $10

5. Forrest "Woody" Jensen, Hillerich & Bradsby 125. A beautiful and mysterious 22" bat. Has numerous signatures of the 1940 World Champion Cincinnati Reds on the bat which I do not think are authentic. The signatures were apparently made with gold calligraphy ink as there are blotter spots. Woody Jensen played his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates and retired in 1939 so this cannot be a factory World Series souvenir bat. Most signatures are nearly worn away. Visible or partially visible signatures include Bill Werber, Frank McCormick Mike McCormick, Morrie Arnovich, Ival Goodman, Bill Baker, Whitey Moore & Harry Craft. It is possible that some of, if not all of, these were "clubhouse" signatures which means they were done by a teams bat boy with the players blessings who wanted to beg off from the obligatory signings. The bat boys often became expert forgers and usually were compensated by the players in some way. This was decades before sports signatures had any monetary value, so the players felt no harm was done. The most obvious incorrect signature is Lou Riggs who went by Lew Riggs. An interesting bat from the 1930's nonetheless. Ex/Mt $35
