1951 Bobby Thomson Game-Used World Series Bat
Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $11,500.00
Any 1951 World Series bat is a special prize, but one issued to Bobby Thomson from this key year is arguably the most desirable of all. It is incredible to think that Bobby Thomson in the 1951 World Series used this very bat, literally days following "The Shot Heard 'Round The World," which of course was responsible for the Giants being in the Series. This 1951 World Series Bobby Thomson H&B Professional Model R16 Bat shows outstanding game use, with evidence of ball hit and blue/red ball transfer marks. This is more than just a World Series bat. This is a bat with an aura; a bat that tells a story at a glance. 1951 will always be Bobby Thomson's year. "The Shot Heard 'Round The World" will always be one of the greatest moments in all of sport. This bat was there, in the wake of the "Shot," and can be traced directly to the hands of Bobby Thomson in the 1951 World Series. Length: 35 inches. Weight: 35 ounces. SCD Authentic Grade: A10. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Dan Knoll/SCD Authentic and John Taube & Vince Malta/PSA DNA. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $11,500.00
