(LOT 35)
Sam Crawford Professional Game Model Used Bat PSA/DNA MINT 9.5 (LOA INCLUDED)

GRADED a PSA/DNA 9.5 by the leading authentication experts in the business, PSA/DNA. It's hard to fathom that a baseball bat used by Baseball Hall Of Famer "Wahoo" Sam Crawford from the labeling period 1912-1917 still exists. A pro model game used bat from over 100 years ago in this nice of condition used by one of the greatest sluggers of his era who led his league in home runs twice and in runs batted in three times. He still holds the MLB record for most career triples, with 309. Made by Spalding with a labeling period of 1912-1917, this club weighs 38.2 ounces and is 35 inches long. Per John Taube, PSA/DNA's Bat Expert, he states, "Spalding Pre-Model Sam Crawford professional model bat exhibits evidence of OUTSTANDING use with a handle crack that has been repaired with 8 small nails.

Many ball marks are visible on the right, left and back barrel. Cleat marks can be seen on the front, right and left barrel. The right and left barrel have been scored. The handle has been taped approximately 3" in a spiral pattern to enhance the grip." Comes with extra documentation from PSA/DNA showing the SAM CRAWFORD TAPE APPLICATION, SAM CRAWFORD SPALDING AUTOGRAPH MODEL and NOT photo matched but a photo of Ty Cobb, Joe Jackson and Sam Crawford in the same photo with Crawford leaning on a similar bat! While with the Tigers, Crawford played alongside superstar Ty Cobb, and the two had an intense rivalry while also helping Detroit win three American League championships from 1907 to 1909. Outstanding to say the least. LOA includes 7 pages in all. Lots of detail and a must for your Baseball Hall Of Fame Bat Collection!
